From the Register;

Be Inc is suing Microsoft for the destruction of its business. A damages figure isn't enumerated, but Be points out that at one stage the company was valued at over $1 billion.

Classic Microsoft.  I wonder, though, what's suddenly emboldening companies like Be and AOHell to take Billy Boy on.  The scuttling of the anti-trust suit?  Overall, any damages taken against Micro$sloth won't mean as much as whatever hesitation put into them from either pursuing their insane .Net strategy, or preventing them from squelching other competing apps and OSes, especially those that can run on Intel chips.  I hope AInc is paying close attention. . .

That's one of the reasons I like the PPC option, a lot of use for the processor is in the embedded market, and the other major use is in Apple Macs.  This means that there is no danger of a company like M$ trying to sabotage plans.  Apple does seem to have first picks of PPC chips, but there's enough of those to go around.

Be, was only valued at 1 Billion prior to the tech wreck. Fact of the matter is, any values given to any business prior to the new millenium really was just an over inflated load of twatle. Just like microsofts products.
