Intel Microsoft isn't the only company in the technology industry with a monopoly. Its partner in crime, Intel, has often been accused of monopoly abuse as well, and is currently under scrutiny by the same European Commission who fined Microsoft. Sources have told eWeek (which generally has a good track record) that Intel will indeed be found guilty this week of abusing its monopoly position to stifle the competition.

EU as it should be

It is good to see the EU using its power once more.

If it were not for the EU I'm not sure the UK or most other countries in europe would have followed this action by itself which would allow the practices to continue.

I fear the US may have to much of a vested interest in Intel being a big beast to throw the book at them in the same way the EU has
