Microsoft is under the eye of the EU once again
, with the European Commission launching another investigation
into their business practices. To nobody's surprise, the complaints are once again related to interoperability and bundling of their own products into Windows. For instance, Opera Software complained that IE is still bundled with Windows and wants them to strip it or include other browsers by default.
The EC made progress with Microsoft last year, when they convinced them to lower their fees for documentation regarding Microsoft protocols. Will they get results this time around? Many vendors are upset with Microsoft's practices, and many of them jointly filed the complaint. This includes companies like Sun, IBM, Red Hat, Oracle and others.
