Microsoft was actually pretty close to being broken up around this time IOTL. As I said, it'll get its own update, where a couple of other things will be tackled too. Put simply, the Netscape lawsuit goes badly for Microsoft, and their different sections get split up. I'll go into why Gates doesn't move the HQ, but suffice it to say, it's mainly arrogance that he's certain he's going to win the suit. He'll still be rich, but very few people are going to be willing to work with him after this.Microsoft broken up?
Surprised Bill Gates didn't move the HQ out of the USA to prevent this.
Also this is a HUGE move and opens up an entire aviary of butterflies, as you are probably aware.
Still I guess Microsoft Gaming Inc might buy up Interplay, Black Isle, Atari and similar smaller studios and give us some seriously decent games.
The Doctor Who updates will be coming out soon. First one may be tonight, and the season's about half-written right now. We've got a lot better at preparing these in advance.
