    ---------------------------------------------------------------------
    Sun Microsystems Friday filed a private antitrust lawsuit against Microsoft, seeking financial damages its top lawyer expects could amount to more than $3 billion.

    The suit, a follow-on to the U.S. Justice Department's landmark case against the company, alleges that Sun's business was harmed by Microsoft's anti-competitive practices.

    Unfortunately, $3 Billion is pocket-change for Bill.

    true $3mill is not that much....

    but the bad press is pricless. The more and more information that becomes public about MS and their illigal Biz practices, the more and more people that will turn away from them... or at least lets hope so
