MS on Trial Exactly a year after the Microsoft trial began on 19 October, Judge Jackson has announced that his findings of fact will be issued on a Friday at 18:30 EDT, which is to say 23:30 BST. But he didn't say which Friday. The reason for this announcement was really a matter of courtesy to both sides, so that they can be equally prepared. The contestants will be given two hours private notice before the 18:30 release, and it is quite likely that this will quickly leak. Since the concluding arguments in September, it had been expected that the result might be out by the end of the year or even early next year, but it now seems more likely that it will be earlier than expected. We modestly draw our gracious readers' attention to our forecast on 1 April (we ain't fooling) that the result would be out on 25 November 1999 (a Thursday, alas), so Judge Jackson needn't hurry too much. ® Complete Register Trial coverage
