Gates at Appomattox: Why the U.S. surrendered

Author: JT Smith

Commentary from Eben Moglen: "It was hardly a surprise. George W. Bush told us during the campaign that he thought US v.
Microsoft shouldn't have been brought in the first place; Al Gore, who could hardly say that,
limited himself to making a campaign appearance at Microsoft's Redmond headquarters. But
what was surprising about this past week's announcement was that the decision had become so
easy for the politicians who really made it. The coalition of "campaign contributors" that had
stiffened the Clinton Administration's spine against Microsoft in the first place had completely
changed sides."
