Internet & Networking Earlier this month, news got out that the European Commission is charging Microsoft with unlawful competition regarding its bundling of the Internet Explorer web bowser with Windows. At the time, information was scarce, but thanks to Microsoft's quarterly filing at the Securities and Exchange Commission. we now have a little more insight into what the EU might force Microsoft to do.

RE[3]: How typical

Recall, it was the Bush administration who changed the Government's side on the case and helped MS apeal Jackson's ruling.

Judge Jackson didn't help the case by spouting his mouth off to the media - and flippant comments like, "Bill Gates as a nepoleonic complex". He should have kept quiet and any questions asked to him should have been replied using the following, "I have not heard all the evidence from both sides of the case, I will reserve any comments till all the evidence is presented and I submit my decision on the matter".

Had he kept his mouth shut - we'd be talking about Microsoft Applications and Microsoft Operating System. Thanks to Judge Jackson spouting his mouth off the Microsoft team had a legitimate argument that the judge had pre-determined the case before all the evidence was provided.

Want someone to blame, blame Judge Jackson for giving Microsoft the tools required to scuttle the case.
