Reader: MS settlement includes Macs
Tim Rand writes about the proposted settlement for Microsoft's antitrust litigation:
"I find it interesting that the Proposed Microsoft settlement for the Microsoft Antitrust Litigation includes the donation of Macintosh systems to schools. See page 24 of [pdf document] as well as other locations throughout the proposed settlement. What it doesn't say is anything about the proportions of non-Microsoft equipment. As well, where it refers to Macintosh systems, it is usually listed as ... or Pentium ... or some such alternative. There are a lot of references to Windows 98SE as the standard OS, but not a version of Mac OS. My guess is that all they would donate would be Mac Office and not anything else. Since this is a class action suit and as computer owners and users includes you and me, we should all review the settlement and give the Court our views of this proposed settlement."

Julian Huff writes: "Just thought I'd drop a note that the Limited Edition Planet of The Apes CD-ROM that comes with the DVD states that it requires a 200 mhzPC with Windows 98, 2000, or NT with 64MB RAM. However, when I popped it in my Quicksilver 867, it came up and ran just fine! Mac compatibility is not mentioned on the cover of the CD, but it's nice to know that it was thought about and implemented! Now, if only Lucas Arts and other companies would get a clue and start doing this with their DVD content!"
