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.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/United_States_v._Microsoft#Settlement

"On November 2, 2001, the DOJ reached an agreement with Microsoft to settle the case."

"Nine states (California, Connecticut, Iowa, Florida, Kansas, Minnesota, Utah, Virginia and Massachusetts) and the District of Columbia (which had been pursuing the case together with the DOJ) did not agree with the settlement, arguing that it did not go far enough to curb Microsoft's anti-competitive business practices."

The US *DOJ* scuttled the case ...

The case was never finished , was never ended following the laws of the US of A , the case was never fully tried.

Why put blame on people , when justice and laws itself where ignored ...
