LXer: Microsoft and Abramoff: Influence in an Anti-Trust Outcome?

Published at LXer:

As a news organization, we first reported on our suspicions that ties between Jack Abramoff and Microsoft existed. In reports we offer, you can see that over the course of two years, from 1998-99, Abramoff received $560,000 to lobby on behalf of Microsoft and additional money to for his efforts on behalf of the BSA. With Abramoff's guilty plea of last week, we also wish to demonstrate our suspicions regarding Microsoft's ties to the Bush administration and question whether they received favorable treatment by the Bush Justice department by paying Abramoff and his aides and partners, starting with Ralph Reed. Our main concern deals with whether or not our government can use Microsoft's status as a monopoly and possible ties to a slew of politicans can stop its global attack on Linux.
