Itâ€™s Been a Tough Week for Microsoft
It has been a tough week for Microsoft. This morning the E.U. announced it is imposing a 1.3 billion dollar fine on the company because Microsoft had Ã¢â¬Åcharged unreasonable prices for access to interface documentation for work group serversÃ¢â¬Â and that it had abused its dominant position under Article 82 of the EC Treaty. That is not something any company wants to hear the week after announcing, Ã¢â¬Ånew interoperability principles and actions will increase openness of key productsÃ¢â¬Â and on the day of Windows Server 2008Ã¢â¬â¢s Ã¢â¬ÅHeroes Happen HereÃ¢â¬Â launch event.
