Using Active Desktop will mean lots of extensive training for users, running up significant training costs for businesses.
As David Lennon, sales and marketing director of LEXIS-NEXIS Europe, pointed out, "When you come into your office in the morning you don't start sorting through all the documents on your desktop, you go to your intray." Or, in this case, your e-mail box rather than your Active Desktop.
In particular, the new Microsoft TV-style Active Desktop will seek to tempt the mass public to try "owned and operated" ventures such as the online political magazine Slate, a travel channel/service called Expedia and CNN-clone MSNBC, as well as Retrospect 360, a historical channel, the Broken Line, a combination travel game/ scavenger hunt, and Riff, a "chat room" where popular musicians talk to their fans.
The bombshell came after Justice presented as evidence a Microsoft internal email in which executives discussed whether or not to split IE into two components: an HTML engine and a 'shell', which handled the GUI - that is, Active Desktop. Those in favor of the split believed Microsoft could sell the Active Desktop component.
Christopher Hassett, Pointcast's CEO, said the company was dedicated to making Microsoft's Active Desktop work, and so would not be providing content for Constellation for the time being.
In addition to the question of which browser to integrate with Quicken, the two companies were also negotiating for a position on the active desktop push channel bar on the Windows desktop.
He said that Intuit evaluated both browsers while developing Quicken 98, but went with IE because Microsoft offered the carrot and stick combination of a prominent place on its now-faded Active Desktop technology if it chose IE.
And a deal between the two to include an Intuit channel on Microsoft's Active Desktop did not prevent Intuit from forging a content deal with Netscape, according to Microsoft.
Disney wanted a channel on Microsoft's Active Desktop. However, to get the channel it had no choice but to cut an agreement with Microsoft in which it would promote the downloading of IE and "placed restrictions on Disney's ability to promote Netscape Navigator," according to government lead attorney David Boies.
