FAX NUMBERS ALL DEPARTMENTS B23-32O7 NEWS DEPARTMENT 827-6363 Lawsuit appears likely against software maker Justice Department planning to announce its decision today By TED BRIDIS The Associated Press WASHINGTON — The long- awaited courtroom collision between the government and Microsoft grew more imminent Sunday, with the Justice Department and at least 20 states poised to file two separate-but-similar antitrust lawsuits today that could change how consumers buy and use most computers. "It would take everyone involved getting struck by lightning for this thing not to happen," said one person close to the government. A news conference to announce the lawsuits was tentatively planned this morning at the Justice Department. With negotiations stalled, the world's most powerful software company said it will go ahead and ship the latest upgrade of its flagship software, Windows 98, to computer makers today. The company had planned to ship the package Friday, but agreed last week to delay its release until today, pending the outcome of talks. Two people close to the government's negotiators said Sunday that state attorneys general will not try to block today's shipment. Instead, states will ask a federal judge to force Microsoft to either strip its Internet browser from the Windows operating system, or order the company also to include copies of browsers made by rival Netscape Communications Corp. and one other software developer to be selected by Microsoft. The states want those changes made before the release of Windows 98 to the public on June 25. T HOUSE FIRE DOES YOUR AUTO INSURANCE NEED A TUNE-UP?

"I do sometimes shake my head and wonder why this is happening. I just don't understand." Bill Gates Microsoft chairman One of those sources said the Justice Department also will file a similar preliminary injunction today, asking Microsoft strip its own browser from Windows 98 or include Netscape's, which is used by about 60 percent of people on the Internet. "It's indefensible that the government would try to force Microsoft and computer makers to give Netscape a free ride on every copy of our Windows operating system," Microsoft spokesman Mark Murray said Sunday. "Netscape clearly has a myriad of ways to distribute its product to customers. We don't think there's any basis in law to make such an unreasonable demand." Eleventh-hour negotiations collapsed Saturday over what Microsoft described as the government's "unreasonable demands," including the condition that it put a copy of Netscape's browser in every copy of Windows, the operating system used to run virtually all desktop computers. "I do sometimes shake my head and wonder why this is happening. I just don't understand," Microsoft Chairman Bill Gates told Time Magazine. "We worked hard to settle. I wish we had been able to. I'll seize every opportunity to do so." 17 hurt when blast levels 3-story house 6 children were injured by blast that damaged neighboring houses By DAVID KLIGMAN The Associated Press SAN FRANCISCO — Investigators were trying to determine Sunday what caused an explosion that tore through a three-story home, ripping it from its foundation and sending glass and debris flying into the street. Five of the 17 people injured remained hospitalized Sunday, four' in serious condition and one in critical condition. Six of those injured in the Saturday night blast were children, including an 8- year-old boy cut by flying wood and metal as he walked nearby. Arson and bomb investigators were examining the home, which lay on its side in a crumbled heap in San Francisco's residential Sunset District. The back end of a crushed car was visible from what was left of the garage.

It was not immediately clear what caused the explosion, fire spokesman Ed Campbell said. No sign of a gas leak was found. The explosion, a large boom followed by two smaller blasts, was so powerful that it blew out windows throughout the neighborhood and shattered the windshields of passing cars. Pieces of the house flew across 19th Avenue, a busy thoroughfare. "It looked like the house got lifted up and crunched down," said Thomas John Gibbons, who had just crossed th'e-U.horoM.ghfare, "The whole right side of the house collapsed." Three off-duty firefighters pried open a gate to help eight residents out of the house. Witnesses said two residents crawled out of a separate window, apparently unhurt. The others who were injured were motorists and passersby hit by flying glass. Shortly after the blast, the house burst into flames, v destroying the two homes flanking it.
