During its antitrust battle with the Justice Department and 19 states,
Microsoft showed more restraint--at least publicly--in its business

signs that the Court of Appeals would partly deflate the
government's victory in the trial court, the software behemoth has returned to the hard-charging
Microsoft of old."
