Microsoft witness shows up on second day

Microsoft executive Dan Rosen fared a bit better during his second day on the stand defending his employer in its historic antitrust battle against the government. But all wasn't well for Rosen, who was once again tripped up by email evidence. When asked when Microsoft became aware of Netscape's Web browser for Windows 95, Rosen said July 1995. Government attorney David Boies then presented email from April 1995 showing that Microsoft was experimenting with the browser then. Rosen's reply, "I stand corrected," temporarily halted proceedings when the courtroom broke out in laughter.

But Rosen handled himself better Tuesday than he had the day before when a frustrated Boies threw up his hands and stopped questioning the recalcitrant Rosen, who feigned ignorance over every minor topic that was presented
