Legal The European Commission is launching two new anti-competition investigations against US computer giant Microsoft. The first will look at whether Microsoft unfairly ties its Explorer internet browser to its Windows operating system. In the parallel investigation, the Commission will look at the interoperability of Microsoft software with rival products. Note: Remember the OSNews comic? Here is a new comic, which, for now, is attached to the story it relates to. We are working on a separate section for the comic, but until that is done, I will sporadically publish comics this way. I have a whole stack of comics ready for when that section goes live - and you can see the name for the comic too, if you look "closely". Enjoy the new comic, titled "Hawaii".

"Or buy themselves a favorable decision in the investigation?
Emmm this is the EU we are talking about, not the US."


What difference does it make? The EU is just as crooked as the rest of em.


The difference being that in the US you only need to buy a couple of people from the president's party, whereas in the EU you'll need a majority in a 700 person parliament with members from 25 different countries.
