Microsoft has been accused of misleading other suppliers by reneging on promises to license its technology, claims Bristol Technology in its court dispute with the Redmond-based giant.
Bristol president and chairman Keith Blackwell claimed Microsoft chose not to renew its agreement to license Windows NT sourcecode, as it wanted to force developers to create applications only for Windows.
Bristol Technology's main product Wind/U is aimed at developers writing applications to run on different operating systems, and acts as a bridge between Windows and Unix. It had a three year licensing agreement with Microsoft for the Windows NT source code, which it had expected to be renewed, when it expired last year.
