re: Microsoft Faces Formal EU Antitrust Violation Charges
Really? I have no issues installing Firefox onto Windows. I've actually had more trouble keeping Chrome off of my machine as it seems to be installed if you download anything free from Adobe and others (grumble). I leave IE on the machine but honestly itGÇÖs a dog compared with Firefox so I don't use it save for websites like OWA where the user experience is superior.

This seems offside in my opinion.

That is an awful lot of money to go after, and I am sure that Microsoft will never repeat this breach of contract if it costs the company that large of a sum. I don't understand, the reports that Microsoft was agreeing to and submitting were false and at the same time they announced that they were in breach of contract? The commission is correct that Explorer had a market advantage because of Microsoft's blatant breach.
