Late on Friday, Microsoft issued a ?partial response? to damaging pre-trial testimony by Apple senior executive Avadis Tevanian (see related story).
It said the meetings with Apple were to discuss ?whether Apple would be interested in cooperating on technology and standards for streaming media over the Internet."
?These kinds of discussions go on in the computer industry every day?, Microsoft contended.
The Microsoft statement also denies the company attempted to ?sabotage? Quicktime. ?The facts show that Apple?s engineers did not properly author the Quicktime set-up program for Windows," the document reads.
For a critique of Tevanian's testimony, see analysis section.
