IS MICROSOFT being persecuted unfairly by the U.S. Justice Department? Many columnists, editorial writers, political cartoonists and members of Congress seem to think so, and public sentiment appears to favor the view that the company should be absolved of any wrongdoing and the suit terminated. I recently heard a news analyst say, "It is difficult to see how consumers have been hurt in any way by Microsoft." The company's ads imply that if the government is successful in breaking them into separate companies, it will be damaging to "healthy competition, innovation and consumer choice."

For the self-styled barbarians at Borland International Inc. who have been besieged and bloodied all year by lawyers and disappointed stockholders, it may come as a relief to face some simple, brutal competition once again in the hotly contested Windows spreadsheet market.Borland introduced a new version of its Quattro Pro for Windows spreadsheet last week, a few months after the introduction of the rival spreadsheet Lotus 1-2-3 Release 4.0, and a few months ahead of the next major update of Microsoft Excel.

I use Microsoft Internet Explorer for Internet access and I don't like the way it keeps a record of every Web site I visit so that other computer users can see where I've been afterward. I want to know how to delete addresses that show up on this pull-down list.I, too, hate that anybody who comes along can find out where I have been on the Internet by calling up the history tab on the Microsoft browser. This feature, which has some very useful business applications for those who need to return quickly to numerous sites, takes a bit of doing to disable.

Like Wayne Gretzky, Lotus 1-2-3 for Windows Release 4 is emerging as a leading candidate for the Comeback of the Year award. The impressive new version of the spreadsheet will reach stores later this month after having been previewed at the recent Spring/Comdex computer show in Atlanta.Much easier to use than earlier versions of Lotus 1-2-3, this new version -- why don't we call it 1-2-3-4 -- adds features and powers that will be especially interesting for executives who frequently collaborate on financial plans with other workers.

When they are in danger of being consumed by a rapidly spreading forest blaze, firefighters often light a second fire parallel to the first. If all goes as planned, the secondary fire will destroy the fuel for the oncoming blaze and deprive it of oxygen. It is a very risky maneuver, because firefighters must also survive their own flames.And that is the position of Borland International Inc., which decided late last month to sell its new Quattro Pro for Windows 5.0 spreadsheet for less than $50. Trapped between not one but two onrushing infernos, in the form of Lotus 1-2-3 and Microsoft Excel, Borland chose to light a fire under its own spreadsheet.

Borland International Inc. is offering new versions of two of its leading personal computer applications, Quattro Pro and dBASE The dBASE program, the most popular data base manager for IBM PC and compatible computers, was acquired by Borland when it purchased the Ashton-Tate Co. last year.Unlike many rivals, the new versions of the Quattro Pro spreadsheet and the dBASE IV data base are designed to run on simple PCs using the DOS operating system.Although DOS-based machines make up a large majority of all personal computers in use today, the major software companies appear to be investing most of their resources in writing or revising programs to run under a new generation of so-called graphical operating systems, including Windows, OS/2 and the Apple Macintosh's System 7.In general, graphical operating systems make it easier to operate the computer.

Not long ago, my friend Chuck bought his first computer. Like many new buyers, he wanted to bring work home from the office, keep track of his household expenses and investments, and give the kids a tool to help them with their schoolwork.Fred isn't exactly computer illiterate. He uses a PC at the office -- WordPerfect for correspondence and reports, Lotus 1-2-3 for budgets and financial projections. But he's not what I'd call a power user. And he was puzzled when he called me."The computer came with this Microsoft Windows program on the hard disk.

The other day I was talking with a friend about "time." All our labor-saving devices -- the computer included -- are not freeing up time, giving us a shorter workweek. People aren't taking an extra vacation to Mazatlan or whatever. Technology is making everyone cram more into a day.Where we once sent letters and expected a week's turnaround time, we now send faxes and expect a response within the hour. People don't have time to mull things over anymore, it seems; they need to choose and think fast on their feet.
