Another Antitrust Suit Filed Against Microsoft

Microsofts efforts to extricate itself from antitrust disputes received another setback last week when the founder of the Go Corporation, a maker of a portable computer operating system in the 1990s, filed suit in federal and state courts last Wednesday.

The lawsuits, which accuse Microsoft of attempting to "kill" Go in the early 1990s, were filed two days before Microsoft announced a settlement with I.B.M. for $775 million in cash and a $75 million software credit related to its anticompetitive actions in undermining OS/2, a desktop computing operating system pursued by the two companies in the late 1980s and early 1990s.
