    Two States Warn of Possible Rift in Microsoft Case

    By Peter Kaplan

    WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Two of the biggest states party to the
    government's antitrust case against Microsoft Corp. (Nasdaq:MSFT -
    news) warned on Friday they might pursue their own sanctions against
    the software giant if they conclude the U.S. Justice Department
    (news - web sites) is going too easy on the company.

    A day after government attorneys said they had dropped the idea of
    pushing to break up Microsoft, New York Attorney General Elliot
    Spitzer and California Attorney General Bill Lockyer insisted that
    the government take a close look at Microsoft's new Windows XP 
    (news - web sites) operating system before proposing a new remedy to
    rein in the company.

Kick some ass, Elliot & Bill.
