Judge Thomas Penfield Jackson may have skewered Microsoft Corp. (Nasdaq: MSFT) in the latest round of action in its antitrust case with the Department of Justice, but that didn’t stop shareholders at the company’s annual meeting from welcoming executives with a hearty standing ovation. Microsoft stock has jumped more than 60 percent since last year’s meeting. Still, the lawsuit was very much on the minds of both shareholders -- who asked many questions about the case -- and executives, who spent a great deal of time addressing the issue. CEO Bill Gates told shareholders he wouldn’t agree to settlement terms that would prevent him from adding Internet features to the operating system. Full story to follow. -- Lisa M.
