Enjoy doing windows without the source code at times...that will be fun.That which saw Microsoft be broken up in October into two. The hardware and operating systems would become Microsoft Operations while the rest of the software development, such as that of what was Microsoft Office would end up becoming MS Applications. While the names were pending, it signaled the willingness of the government to maintain breaking up monopolies. MS Applications would soon began working on exporting Microsoft Office (now MSOffice) onto different operating systems and hope to bring the golden standard of their development into other systems.

And who own each company? which is bill? which is paul, which is steve?
Nice the merger with Sega, that allow to save some money and okawa would have sold it very cheap too
Exclusivity matter, meaning not ports, a loss but that is how butterflies work.We will still have a few Sonic games on Nintendo consoles for a few reasons and also for interest. Pop culture will also obviously change so feel free to suggest stuff for this.
I think Bill and Paul would keep sega autonomy as long not loss much money in reorganization and keep like their brand for japan, the rest would keep funded and expanded very welll..i think Balmer would have been a little strict with goals for the console...Yeah, that was actually some plans to be considered in OTL. Granted, SEGA has a lot of autonomy so it’s not like many changes would happen within the games themselves since Microsoft would see it as their in Japan.

I got Al Gore to beat dubya in Campaign Trail by campaigning in Tennessee and ignored Florida altogetherWell, this is my first timeline! A timeline where Al Gore instead of George W. Bush became President of the United States in 2000. It's a bit of a classic, but there's alot of potential here and I am happy to take suggestions, criticisms and corrections since politics is not exactly my forte here.
In fact, I'll be happy to work with others when it comes to suggestions for House/Senate/Gov elections alongside staff picks! Along with some other potential interactions...
But it goes!
For A Gore Prosperous Tomorrow!
"At the end of the day, the man with most votes wins and gets it. Anything otherwise would be a dentriment to our democracy."
"Alot of votes nearly lost at technicalities. This is inane."
No one knew how it happened or the details at the time. Some say it was a miracle or a stroke of misfortune. Others say it was the work of God. Some say it was a bunch of little things that came together. Perhaps it was Gore asking for a more thorough recount. Perhaps it was the Supreme Court of the US or Florida going by instinct or new decisions or lack thereof. The Florida recount had been one of the most tenseful periods in the election season, especially with everything looking so close.
However, the recounts went through and the entire ordeal went on too long. At the end of the day, political chicanery drove everyone to a wall and it just ended. The news said it out loud.
AL GORE TAKES FLORIDA!

George W. Bush would take the news as well as anyone could, but the stress and especially so near the holidays had just gotten to him. He would concede the Election over to Al Gore. Starting within 2001, the 43rd President of the United States would be none other than Albert Arnold Gore Jr.
It was one of the closest watched elections. While a minor few felt Bush got cheated, the general consensus showed that the man who gained the most votes would win. Additionally, for the gaffes aimed at Al Gore's expense, he still portrayed himself seriously and thus, seemed more like President material than George Bush Jr.
The new millenium began so contentiously and many people hoped that matters would improve over time. That the future would be prosperous after everything they had gone through.
Only time would tell. Al Gore meanwhile would get his congratulations from Bill Clinton and the Democrats secure themselves four more years. Yet, with the Senate tied and the House barely in the Republican camp, it was going to require plenty of compromises, though who knew what the future would hold.
So yeah, who would you recommend that Gore would take for his Cabinet?
