MS Settled Anti-Trust Deal

Found this at Activewin. ;)

Microsoft once again may have snatched a victory at the settlement table that it might not have been able to achieve in the courtroom. The Redmond, Wash.-based software titan has cut a deal that would dismiss more than 100 pending private antitrust cases against the company. Lawyers brought the majority of the cases last year after a federal judge ruled that Microsoft had violated two sections of the 1890 Sherman Antitrust Act. If approved by a federal judge in Baltimore, the agreement could help Microsoft increase its presence in schools, where rival Apple Computer is the market-share leader. Under proposed terms of the settlement, Microsoft would donate reconditioned computers, software, services and training--valued at more than $1 billion--to 14 percent of the nation's poorest schools, said sources familiar with the agreement.
