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.

I am an OEM and XP is $95 here in the UK.


Are you able to get XP for that same price from Microsoft if your were to advertise and ship two products with the exact same hardware, one with XP pre-installed and one with Ubuntu pre-installed, with a $95 difference in the price tag?

Yes, I do. I do not artificially inflate the Linux (Opensuse) price just to make the XP prices look good.

If someone orders an XP machine from us, they are well away of the differences.
