Under the ruling, Microsoft had to supply rivals with information about its Windows operating system.

"Staring down microsoft aint that easy."

It's anything but easy. Non-EU based companies are watching this situation unfold with growing interest.

In some ways this has nearly nothing to do with MS. This has everything to do with the future of foreign business within the EU.

It might be less expensive for MS to simply tell them to screw themselves.
