    Ashcroft says Microsoft ruling "significant victory"
    WASHINGTON, June 28 (Reuters) - Attorney General John Ashcroft hailed on Thursday the appeals court ruling that left intact a lower court ruling that Microsoft Corp. (NasdaqNM:MSFT - news) had engaged in unlawful conduct to maintain its monopoly in the personal computer operating system market.

    ``This is a signficant victory,'' Ashcroft told reporters at a news conference.

    Earlier a U.S. appeals court overturned a lower-court order that would have split Microsoft Corp in two, but left intact the lower-court finding that some of its business conduct amounted to illegal maintenance of its Windows monopoly.

    ``Today's decision represents a very signficant victory for the antitrust division on the core claim in the Microsoft case that Microsoft engaged in anticompetitive conduct to preserve its monopoly position in computer operating systems,'' Charles James, the Justice Department's top antitrust enforcer.
