the Giant - The Government Proposal to Divide Microsoft
the Justice Department and 19 states asked a federal judge to divide Microsoft
in two, with one of the " baby Bills" focusing on Windows and the other

market for Web browsers. The proposal thus marks the latest step in the historic
antitrust suit against Microsoft--a case that has sharply divided the technology
industry and even roiled Wall Street.
