Intel In a statement to Betanews this afternoon, a spokesperson for Intel confirmed that the company has filed an appeal of last May's European Commission ruling, in which the company was fined the equivalent of $1.4 billion for what it found to be antitrust violations. According to spokesperson Chuck Mulloy, Intel's theory for its appeal is that the EC was prevented from seeing critical and possibly exculpatory documents, on account of an order of the court trying AMD's civil case against Intel in Delaware.

Actually it's about time for action to be taken, but I don't feel that it's the best possible action from the EC.
In my opinion, the best action would require Intel to open up their platform (chipset/cpu specs) to competitors. That would surely solve a lot of problems. Imagine AMD or Via coming up with a CPU for the LGA1366 socket. Imagine NVidia coming up with a chipset for Nehalem CPUs.
