Analysts point out the irony of the European verdict: a ruling against Microsoft could add to consumers' frustrations as it would support a fragmented media market and extend the ongoing format wars.

Extend the wars? As opposed to what, MS winning straight away? :rolleyes:

how will this fragment the market? it just makes people make a choice of what player they want to use. it may not be as easy, since players wouldn't be pre-installed and have to be downloaded first, but it will definately give people a choice.
