When consumers click the link to buy music, Windows opens Microsoft's browser software even after consumers specify that they prefer using rival browser software.
I'd say this clearly violates antitrust agreements, but I'll be surprised if M$ gets more than a slap on the wrist.

Whats the point. The US government cave in when it comes to handling out sufficient justice to MS.

Hopefully Europe will sort them out over on the otherside of the pond, which in turn, will have an effect around the world. Microsoft aren't going to ship a worldwide edition and then a European Edition. It would be a mess.

Thanks for the fix. I think it seems to be directed against iTunes, Microsoft just can't seem stand not having the majority of users. Is it just me or does Gates seem more tyrannical than usual in those pics.

I wish the government and all others would ease up on MS. They are just the offspring of the great capitalistic machine known as America. Their only sin is that they are too good at what they do, which is dominate.
