" US FEDERAL and state antitrust regulators are to meet with Microsoft to have a quiet word about some of the antitrust problems that might arise if Vole releases Longhorn. According to PC World magazine, the Department of Justice (DoJ) is apparently hoping to see off a repeat of the long-running US DoJ vs Microsoft antitrust case. The meeting will come as part of the existing DoJ agreement with Vole. It will include a court-appointed technical committee which has been in charge of monitoring Microsoft's operating system.

According to a court report which has been released, the plaintiffs have prepared a list of topics relating to Longhorn, enabling early detection and resolution of any potential areas of concern."
