: Without admitting wrongdoing, Microsoft today agreed
to pay $23,250,000 to Be, Inc., to settle anti-trust claims against the software giant. The payout is anticipated to be used to complete the orderly dissolution of the company.
Shortly after announcing sale of key assets to Palm, Be, Inc., filed suit against Microsoft in February 2002, alleging destruction of its business via illegal exclusionary and anti-competitive business practices.
Of course, there is no such thing as 'wrongdoing' when you have 25 million to spare, right?
