Computerworld News notes Update: Microsoft to pay IBM $775M in antitrust settlement. “Microsoft and IBM have agreed on a $775 million settlement in IBM’s private antitrust case against Microsoft… Including today’s settlement, Microsoft has paid about $4.5 billion in antitrust claims following the U.S. government case. Pending antitrust lawsuits include those brought by RealNetworks Inc., Novell Inc. and Go Corp.”

Wow. For some companies, $4,500,000,000 would be a lot of money.
