Oral arguments are slated to begin in about an hour or so (at the time of this writing). ZDNet reports:

“I think you’re going to see a lot of vigorous questioning,” said Andy Gavil, an antitrust professor with Howard University School of Law. He added that because of the streaming decision, “The judges are acutely aware that lots of people are listening.”

The U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit will handle the appeal. At issue is whether Microsoft (Nasdaq: MSFT) will be broken into two separate companies, one that focuses on the software company’s operating system business, the other on software applications.

A webcast will be available this evening. Can’t wait? C-SPAN has a live audio simulcast beginning at 9:30 AM EST.
