LXer: EU launches legal action against Microsoft

Published at LXer:

The European Commission said Friday it has begun legal action against Microsoft Corp. saying the American software giant's practice of linking its Internet Explorer web browser to its Windows operating system violates European Union antitrust rules. "Microsoft's tying of Internet Explorer to the Windows operating system harms competition between web browsers, undermines product innovation and ultimately reduces consumer choice," the EU executive said in a statement.

That is good news. I'm glad at least the EU continues to fight the evil empire, at least enough to let some competition through.
