Judge Questions Microsoft Attempts to Fragment Caldera Case.

In a comment widely read as favorable to Caldera Inc in its own antitrust trial against Microsoft Corp, US District Judge Dee Benson has observed that Microsoft's "divide and conquer" approach to Caldera's case "may be arguably improper." Microsoft has split up into nine separate issues the two questions Caldera wants to put to the jury. Those questions can be paraphrased as: did Microsoft engage in a pattern of anti-competitive conduct against DR-DOS? And did Microsoft illegally tie Windows 3.1 to its own MS-DOS? Benson will hand down a ruling on Microsoft's claims some time in the next few days. "Caldera wants its day in court," spokesperson, Lyle Ball told ComputerWire, "and we are very pleased that we are able to present a side of the computer industry's history that has never before been made public."
