Note DVD release of a 1998 segment of the television program The News hour with Jim Lehrer.
Summary In this program Bill Gates, Paul [i.e. Steve] Ballmer and other Microsoft executives square off against their opponents including Netscape CEO Jim Barksdale and Asst. Attorney General Joel Klein to discuss the allegations that Microsoft has made predatory use of its monopoly power to stifle its competition. Microsoft's integration of it's Web browser, Internet Explorer, into Window's core code, makes the choice of competitive programs difficult. There is also a growing concern that by manufacturing Internet Explorer with pre-selected Microsoft-centric hyperlinks, Microsoft will become the de facto keeper of the gateway to cyberspace.
