Legal "Opera Software filed a complaint with the European Commission yesterday which is aimed at giving consumers a genuine choice of Web browsers. The complaint describes how Microsoft is abusing its dominant position by tying its browser, Internet Explorer, to the Windows operating system and by hindering interoperability by not following accepted Web standards. Opera has requested the Commission to take the necessary actions to compel Microsoft to give consumers a real choice and to support open Web standards in Internet Explorer."

Not filing suit

Opera is not 'suing' Microsoft, it's filing a complaint with the European Commission.

The Commission can then choose to research the complaint, and can force Microsoft to do certain things based on European antitrust law.
