Those are serious and far reaching. far reaching remedies.
The Justice Department, along with 19 states, call Microsoft a predator -- illegally using its Windows monopoly to force feed computer users its internet software, all the while crushing its chief rival, Netscape.
But Microsoft denies the charges arguing it no longer has a monopoly, and that consumers were never hurt in the process of a company just trying to compete. Come get Windows 95!
Bill Gates, the company's CEO never appeared at the trial except on video but has vowed to fight the case to the end. And with a personal fortune valued at $75 billion dollars, he has the money to do it. BILL GATES, CEO MICROSOFT, VIDEO FROM MICROSOFT: We hope that fair to consumers.
A final ruling isn't expected for at least another six weeks but if the Judge finds Microsoft violated antitrust law he could impose serious restrictions on the way Microsoft does business, or even force the company to break up. Lee Cowan, CBS News, Washington.))

The new era of Ricky Stokes basketball started tonight at the Cassell in Blacksburg.
The Hokies got off to a good start as Dennis Mims misses the bucket but Roland Roberts does the clean up act for an early 2 to 2 tie.
Minutes later Brendan Dunlop finds nothing but net as he strokes a three pointer over the Authority defense in an 11 to 3 lead.
But the Authority would come back on their end of the floor as Jason Williford gets the two point bucket.
[SUPER=33-Virginia Tech/80/Court Authority/68/;]


The Hokies offense continued working all over the floor as Roberts gets the inside edge knocking down the hoop and getting the foul and Tech goes on to win it 80 to 68.
