The Commission is expected to rule that Microsoft has failed to fully implement its 2004 antitrust decision. Under the ruling, Microsoft had to supply rivals with information about its Windows operating system.

"This is NOT an Europe vs. USA thing. If you think it is you are being childish."

I consider it a matter of the European Commission grossly over-estimating their ability to exert control over a non-EU based corporation.

Regardless of the outcome of the current situation with Microsoft, the EC is eventually going to realize this was really piss poor idea.
