Government Recommends Microsoft Breakup

Government Recommends Microsoft Breakup -- In the latest move in the ongoing antitrust action against Microsoft, last Friday the U.S. government proposed breaking Microsoft into two separate companies for ten years. One company would be tightly regulated and focus solely on Windows operating systems, and the other would encompass all other Microsoft businesses, including Office, online ventures, development tools, server software, Web browsers, games, and much more. Microsoft reiterated its intention to defend itself aggressively against any judgment against it. [GD]
