BILL GATES REPLIES
Compete, don't delete [INLINE]
In a leader and accompanying article in our issue of May 23rd, we
argued that America's Justice Department was right to bring an
antitrust case against Microsoft. We asked Bill Gates to respond, and
this is his reply * [INLINE]
Founded on open standards
In the American computer-services industry, more than 300,000 people
work in jobs related to Microsoft software, making up an industry with
$40 billion in annual revenues. There are more than twice as many
opportunities for Windows-based computer-services careers in America
than there are for jobs focused on the combined proprietary
technologies of IBM, Novell, Oracle and Unix. Open standards are what
create jobs-not regulation or the old, vertically integrated
computer-industry model our competitors seek to resurrect. Open
standards are the reason why PC sales have soared (see chart 1).
