Microsoft In February 2008, the European Commission fined Microsoft for the record-breaking amount of 899 million Euros, for not complying to the 2004 ruling from Brussels. Today, Microsoft announced it has decided to appeal the fine. "We are filing this appeal in a constructive effort to seek clarity from the court. We will not be saying anything further," the company stated.

"The answer, as Google, Apple, and Mozilla have demonstrated is to make better products than Microsoft's."
There are better operating systems than Windows. But how can they compete when 95% of the computers come bundled with Windows?
The slaves go to Best Buy and don't have a clue. They pay without even having a choice. Better than fining Microsoft would be forcing the vendors to not bundle the computers with Windows and present a few alternatives. If the customers still want Windows, OK then, but at least let them know that there are alternatives.
