Microsoft to be broken up

What people have been saying would happen for a couple of years, the unbelievable, has finally happened. The United States Department of Justice has called for the breakup of Microsoft into two separate companies: an applications company which will manage software like Microsoft Office and Internet Explorer, let alone the games that Microsoft produce, and an operating systems company that will manage products such as Windows NT and Windows 2000.

Microsoft has vowed to appeal, so the fight will go on.
