Money Talks Microsoft Walks Bill Gat

Money talks, Microsoft walks. Bill Gates lets out a big “Whew!” as the court decides that what’s good for Microsoft is good for America. [Salon.com]
I’m sorta annoyed that Scott Rosenberg makes vague claims that by not messing with the source that the settlement/judgment doesn’t get to the heart of the matter. He ignores all the disclosure/middleware pieces of the settlement, and fails to explain how and what would be gained if something was done (to be fair, the states didn’t bother explaining this either which is why the judge dismissed it), or how it could be abused if it wasn’t done in the frame of the current judgment.
