* MS Antitrust Continues

PC Games/Hardware/Microsoft
Every time they settle one case, another pops up. This one's New York Times, so registration or bugmenot will be necessary.

The lawsuits, which accuse Microsoft of attempting to "kill" Go in the early 1990's, 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 1980's and early 1990's.

Founded in 1987 by S. Jerrold Kaplan, the former chief scientist of the Lotus Development Corporation, Go set out to develop a class of portable computer controlled by a pen rather than a keyboard.

A portion of the case hinges on the behavior of Microsoft's engineers after they had been given access to Go's technology under a nondisclosure agreement. The lawsuit cites Microsoft documents that suggest the engineers were gathering intelligence to help Microsoft develop a competing product.
