Today, WordPerfect is gone as a company and Novell is down to about 2,000 employees. A big reason: Microsoft, the conqueror of the word processing and PC network software markets.
Yet a handful of Utahns,including Sen. Orrin Hatch (R-Utah), chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee, and Ray Noorda, former Novell chairman and president of The Canopy Group, a Provo venture capital firm,didn't overlook who fostered the decline of their state's IT prominence. And without their prodding, the Microsoft antitrust case and subsequent court-ordered breakup, now being directed toward the Supreme Court, might never have happened.
Hatch is a mobster shakedown thug just like all the other "politicians".
Hasn’t Palin endorsed this guy Hatch?
