Legal A group of state attorneys general urged a federal judge on Tuesday to hold Microsoft to a 2002 antitrust settlement another five years so that the company can't stymie embryonic Web 2.0 rivals of its Windows operating system. According to six states - California, Connecticut, Iowa, Kansas, Minnesota and Massachusetts - and the District of Columbia, Microsoft could use its Internet Explorer browser as a 'chokepoint' to block moves that might unseat Windows dominant position on the desktop.

There's a new kernel for sure. But the 1st x86 32 bit processor was the 386 back in 1986 and MS released their 1st 32 bit OS for the desktop, XP Home Edition, in 2001. Who'd think MS are still in business because they're innovative?
