SOFTWARE FIRM Microsoft paid Be .3 million yesterday over an outstanding antitrust case but didn't accept any liability as part of the agreement.
Be had claimed Microsoft used its monopolistic clout to persuade PC vendors not to use any operating system but its own.

Be, which is currently in the process of winding up, had claimed that the Vole broke both federal and Californian antitrust laws.

But Microsoft said that Be would have gone bust anyway, and that its practices had nothing to do with its demise.
