Microsoft Raptor Neal Mulligan neal karenmulligan@rcn.com When the government broke up Standard Oil all that happened was John D then owned 5 companies instead of one and it was a natural resource, oil. The technology had matured and was largely in the public domain. The mom and pop oil cracking wasn't going to come back. Ma Bell was an old horse possibly past its best days and it was a overall plus. But this one is not so clear. Watch out for the foreign tech companies if MS is mortally wounded, especially those from the far east. I don't know if there was a workable alternative and have no faith that DOJ would have recognized one anyway. We put up with SO until all of the small companies were OOB and MA Bell for several generations. Why so quick on this one?
