The opening statements have ended in the Iowa consumer class action against Microsoft.  The Plaintiffs’ side of the evidence began on Friday with the Plaintiffs playing a video taped deposition of Bill Gates from 1998.  The deposition was taken during the government case against Microsoft back in the 90s. 

Sources have said Gates was "evasive" and "unresponsive" during this deposition.  It is widely believed the deposition is not exactly the Microsoft CEO’s finest hours

It is expected that Gates will testify live next year during the defense portion of the case.
