Microsoft has filed 500 pages of testimony in its continuing anti-trust case with nine US states. The filing of its testimony represents Microsoft’s last action before the closing arguments in the case scheduled for June 19. Microsoft believes that the nine states have no legal standing to demand any changes in the company’s business operations or strategies.
The nine US states want Microsoft to make significant alterations to its Windows operating system. These changes would see the creation of a modular version of Windows that would enable 3rd parties to add or remove features. The nine states want Microsoft to put Internet Explorer into the public domain. They are also demanding that Microsoft translates its Office software so that it can be used on other operating systems.
