    2002 Federal Register: Public Comments on the United States v.  Microsoft
    Corporation Settlement
    An often scathing, exhaustive record for those who choose to consult it,
    the "Federal Register of Public Comments on the United States v. Microsoft
    Corporation Settlement" warrants even a cursory reading by anyone
    interested in the landmark case against the world's most powerful
    corporation. Containing more than 30,000 letters sent by private
    individuals, groups, organizations, and societies regarding the
    government's proposed settlement with Microsoft, the archive is a vast and
    varied one, allowing the public to gauge overall reaction to the case, how
    it was conducted, and its proposed outcomes.  Made available by GPO
    Access, the letters are readable in either HTML or Adobe Acrobat (.pdf)
    formats and are cataloged in thirty groups of one thousand letters each,
    archived in order of the date they were received. The entire archive is
    browseable by accession number and/or name of author. While not always
    easy reading, the archive is a unique record of the public's opportunity
    to sound off on a legal decision literally affecting everyone touched by
