    They did that years ago. MS did it badly, so its fined again.

    I dont see whats so bad about that. The real problem is the original fine but that ship passed a looooooong time ago.

    They are just trying to get cash from an AMERICAN company! If I were Microsoft I would teach the EU a lesson and PULL OUT! Let them foreigners use some other OS!
    I bet you if this were to happen you Europeans would be singing a different tune!
    Sick of crap like this. Microsoft is a great company and Bill Gates does NOTHING BUT GOOD around the world and what does he get for this? Some foreigners trying to take from him BILLIONS! Nothing like working with a bunch of leaches!
    Hey BILL Gates pull out and let them find some thing better! Fuck them With all the cash you MAKE from US here in America you can surely hold your own till you squeeze them dry!
    Microsoft should also stop all support and updates to them blood sucking Europeans! Let them suffer!

    hey man i agree the EU sucks actually- several would like to see what the EU does when MS disables any form of OS over there and you know they can do it easily

    with Linux not being as popular as Windows they will be crippled because of software incompatibility

    lmao dude you need to chill lol, no reason to get so flustered over this, its on going but most here would like to see what EU does when MS takes action against them. MS has a global market share and honestly can make it back fairly quick.

    Unix/linux are interesting to play with but they havent been adopted as a Competing OS for PC or Mac systems despite Mac being Darwin/BSD based

    They way i figure it, if A company want's to sell a product in B country, it should make sure it respects B country's law.

    In this case, it's an European Union instead of a country but the same principle applies.


    I'm sure in A country's some things are legal but in B country aren't and vice versa or they may be legal in both but with different set of rules or something.

    Let them!
    I highly doubt that it would even put a dent in Microsoft! In fact good luck getting your windows based software to run on it! That is what I would say to them!

    I like the multiple browser installation screen, but MS shouldn't be sued to include it. Needs to come about from customer demand.

    dunno if u americans have this but we here also have the windows refund law:
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Windows_refund
    The "Windows refund" is a refund claimed by a user after purchasing a computer with the Microsoft Windows operating system pre-installed on it. The refund is issued by the computer manufacturer, or occasionally the retailer, for the copy of Microsoft Windows alone, rather than the whole computer. While some customers have successfully obtained payments (in some cases after litigation or lengthy negotiations), others have been less successful.
