However, their bad news is that an EU committee ruled on Monday that Microsoft failed to comply with a landmark antitrust decision, paving the way for fines of up to 2 million euros a day, a source familiar with the situation said.

Just a couple of little comments:

"And Internet Explorer works with [most] standards-based websites, just as Firefox and Safari do. "

Have you spent much time doing web design? IE 6 Windows requires more hacks added into standards-based code than any other browser to make it display properly.

"Both Mac OS X and Linux include SMB support."

Which was reverse engineered from the Microsoft products as Microsoft refused to provide the specifications...

Just my point of view.
