Dear Mr. Weaver:

Thank you for your email.  Let me help clear up what I think may
be a
misunderstanding on your part:

For the past four years, Barnes & Noble has had promotional bays
in the
Computer Book section that feature the books of a single
publisher.  They
remain up for one year.  For the past 14 months we have had an
O'Reilly bay
and a bay of java books from Pearson.  Beginning today, we have
a Microsoft
.Net bay, which are books from Microsoft press on Microsoft's
technology, and a Visual Learning bay, which features books from
John Wiley
in their Visual series.

If you have any further questions, I'd be more than happy to
answer them.


Mary Ellen Keating
Senior Vice President

It is my understanding that the New York office has mandated
that the 
space normally used for display of O'Reilly books is to be used
Microsoft books. In light of the recent court decision that
Microsoft was a monopoly, it seems that Barnes & Noble have
reinforce the monopoly by the action that they have taken. This
influence my buying decisions in the future. Why do you insist
shooting yourself in the foot. This will surely be brought up at
board of directors meeting with strenuous objections being
