Windows The moment Microsoft announced it would lock other browsers out of being installed on Windows RT, we all knew regulatory bodies the world over were wringing their hands. Today, this has been confirmed: in the wake of an investigation into Microsoft not complying with the existing antitrust rulings regarding browser choice, the EU has also announced it's investigating Windows 8 x86 and Windows 8 RT (ARM).

It looks like someone told them in a public forum they had a problem with the browser choice window back in March, 2011 and Microsoft did nothing to fix the problem:

Failing to do due diligence out in the open is going to really piss off the commissioners I suspect. Microsoft can't say it was a bug, because they had been told about the problem 16 months ago and Microsoft did nothing about it!!!!!
