(Attorney General Miller is head of the 19-State Microsoft Working Group executive committee.)
The States have reached no consensus about the best remedies we might seek in the Microsoft case. Judge Jackson's findings of fact support a wide range of possible remedies, and we continue to explore all those possible remedies.
State attorneys general are in no rush to narrow our options on remedies. Nor do we believe there are any litmus tests other than our resolve to ensure for all consumers the greatest competition, the most innovation, the widest amount of choice, and the lowest prices.
We will work closely with the U.S. Department of Justice on the remedy questions and hope to reach a consensus with the DOJ as well as internally among ourselves. We fully expect to meet this goal without hampering the growth of this vital industry.
