Microsoft wins the right to keep selling MS Word

The US Court of Appeals has granted Microsoft's request to put off an injunction that could have forced it to stop selling Office Word as of October 10.

While I have no particular love for Microsoft I do think this is the right decision because if Microsoft win the final appeal then their business will not have been harmed by the court delay while if i4i win the case then they can just collect another few hundred million dollars in damages.

Neither result will affect the amount I pay on my mortgage so my interest is academic at most.
