EC Fines Microsoft
Software giant Microsoft - the one that inflicted Windows Vista® on an unsuspecting world - has been hit with a double whammy this week. The European Commission has fined it 899 million euro thingies ($1.4bn or £680.9m in real money) for its for anti-competitive practices. Back in the USA, a judge has given the go-ahead for a limited lawsuit against Microsoft for putting this misleading sticker on computers for sale using Windows XP®. It turned out that the XP machines could run only the most basic version of Vista, so weren't truly "Vista capable" (CLICK). Anyone know if these stickers appeared in the UK?
