Judge Dismisses Novell's Antitrust Suit Against Microsoft

How long has this case been dragging on? Honestly, after eight years, people don't care about who "wins," they just want to quit hearing about it. smile

Although Novell presented evidence from which a jury could have found that Microsoft engaged in aggressive conduct, perhaps to monopolize or attempt to monopolize the applications market, it did not present evidence sufficient for a jury to find that Microsoft committed any acts that violated s.2 [of the Sherman Act; U.S. antitrust laws] in maintaining its monopoly in the operating systems market. Therefore, Microsoft’s motion [to dismiss] will be granted.
