35324975 story Microsoft Wins WordPerfect Antitrust Battle With Novell 124 Posted by Soulskill on Tuesday July 17, 2012 @05:25AM from the raise-your-hand-if-you-even-remember-wordperfect dept. New submitter Psychotic_Wrath writes "After a long, drawn-out legal battle and a hung jury, a federal judge has dismissed Novell's antitrust case against Microsoft. The case involved allegations from Novell that Microsoft removed code from its Windows 95 operating system which created the need for further development to WordPerfect. Novell says this delayed the release of their product, giving Microsoft Word an unfair advantage. Groklaw has a detailed write-up on the decision."
