Legal "The European Commission has imposed a EUR 561 million fine on Microsoft for failing to comply with its commitments to offer users a browser choice screen enabling them to easily choose their preferred web browser. In 2009, the Commission had made these commitments legally binding on Microsoft until 2014. In today's decision, the Commission finds that Microsoft failed to roll out the browser choice screen with its Windows 7 Service Pack 1 from May 2011 until July 2012. 15 million Windows users in the EU therefore did not see the choice screen during this period. Microsoft has acknowledged that the choice screen was not displayed during that time." Burn.

Lol Tony, in trying to make your usual Apple slanted post you're just highlighting the problem on iOS which no one directly mentioned before.

Apple don't allow competition with their own apps on iOS, they didn't even allow tools which efficiently converted flash into their own proprietary format in the name of... er... openness?

MS and the days of IE6 were bad times, Firebird (as Firefox was called back then) was the shining light so at least those who saw what was happening could switch and others followed.
What are you going to do on iOS today? It's only webkit in different dressings (and artificially hindered compared to Safari).

Wish you'd kept your mouth shut or just stuck to MS bashing?
