Microsoft lawyers had good reason to suspect that this witness -- who is paid $100 a day by the Justice Department -- is being less than objective. Aren't there any companies that prefer to get their Windows with added Explorer? Certainly, said Weadock. "My point is there are some that don't, and they have no way to get rid of it." This gets back to an old complaint Judge Jackson leveled against Microsoft back in 1997: Despite what Windows tells you, there's no way to disentangle and dump the Internet Explorer code. But the feds have been on relatively shaky ground here after an appeals court ruling last summer declared the bundling legal. That could explain why Weadock gets shuffled off the stand Wednesday in favor of another heavy-hitting Microsoft victim: IBM.
