Salon Technology's writers discuss the latest news in high tech and give their opinionated takes on the biggest technology stories of the week. On Thursday, the U.S. Court of Appeals handed down its long-awaited opinion on the Microsoft antitrust case, sending journalists and other observers on a mad scramble to make sense of a complex decision.

Andrew Leonard says that what looked at first like a victory for Microsoft is actually a damaging defeat. And that those who follow the open source movement suspect that Bill Gates has a lot more to worry about than monopoly allegations.
