GATEWAY BEATS BILL GATES
The Justice Department's lawsuit against Microsoft may be trouble for Bill Gates, but it could help business for Gateway. In an industry first, and with Microsoft's grudging assent, the PC maker is offering new customers the Windows 98 operating system and a choice of either the Microsoft or Netscape browser. (To get that choice, customers must pick Gateway's Internet service over those of AOL and other providers.) Also, those paying for their PC in monthly installments starting at $50 can trade up to a faster model two years later.
