Microsoft In a Q&A, Neelie Kroes, who fined MS for not complying with the EC's antitrust ruling, said: "I regret that the Commission has had to take such a step today, but given Microsoft's continued non-compliance to date, I have been left with no alternative. Today's decision reflects my determination to ensure that Microsoft complies with its obligations.Microsoft has claimed that its obligations in the decision are not clear, or that the obligations have changed. I cannot accept this characterisation - Microsoft's obligations are clearly outlined in the 2004 decision and have remained constant since then."

Fair it is not, nor can it be! But to try to justify with

" 1.) They change"

is an insult to ones intellect. Please refrain from posting such mindless comments. In case that you need facts to rebute your statement (I can't believe I'm doing this)... :

Excell still works even when you don't update it at all while at the same time you upgrade OS (say from Win98 to WinXP) and/or you apply patches and updates.

API's usually don't change, it is their implementation that changes.
