Found this today, nice to see M$ getting it's back-side kicked. I wonder how much this will cost everyone in Europe.  scratch-head

Might be interesting to keep a close eye on the cost of 7 and 8 over the next month or two.  Lips Sealed

I know M$ agreed to the terms a while back, but common it is not like one cannot install a different browser. to me this lawsuit is hogwash......Googles laptops came with crome only installed, ipads come with safari installed only, I mean common now.

however like I said M$ did agree and did not follow, and this is going to hurt M$ a bit.

I'm thinking this is a fine example of government depressing technology  scratch-head

I'm on M$ side with this one.

Another example of the EU getting it wrong and basically not knowing what they are doing.

You have to have a web browser built in to the operating system so you can then go online and download your favourite browser, which is exactly what people do now and I don't hear anyone complaining about it other than a bunch of un-elected EU ...

Place me, please, firmly in the same camp as Data and the {evil} Uncle Bill. Microsoft shouldn't have to advertise for their competitors, IMHO. that's just asinine. And Data, I think the word you're looking for is DUMB@$$E$. Tongue

Yeah, "DUMB@$$E$" that's the word I was looking for, thanks Dave  thumbsup

And as Diesel said, keep an eye on the price of Windows, it's probably going to go up to pay for this.
Maybe that's why Win 8 pro is so expensive to buy at £189  angry
