The EU considers Microsoft to be guilty of uncompetitive behaviour
It was back in 2004 that an investigation concluded in that Microsoft was guilty of freezing out rivals in products such as media players, and unfairly linking its Explorer internet browser to its Windows operating system at the expense of rival systems.
I think Microsoft’s Explorer is inferior to its rivals in any case.
Now the fine is a record, yet it is still so small against the vast wealth of the company that I do think it will be a deterrent to them.
Windows Vista is interesting, when it came out it reminded me of something. Then I remembered, it is like a Linux I was looking at about five years ago. Why is it that a company so rich is not able to lead the way in innovation?
The real problem with Microsoft in my opinion is that the sovereignty of nations in undermined if the USA control the computers of the globe.
