EU slap Microsoft with a massive fine
Antitrust regulators at the European Union (a very exciting bunch) have chased after Microsoft so they can lamp them with a huge fine after the software vendors broke a promise to offer Windows users a choice of rival Internet browsers.
And that fine is £484 million, 1% of the company's 2012 revenues.
The EU competition commissioner, Joaquín Almunia, seems to be making an example of Microsoft as they are the first software giant to break new rules from the antitrust crew.
The European commission have already served a £1.4bn fine to Microsoft for not providing data at fair prices to rivals and for tying their media player to the Windows operating system.
It is bad news for Microsoft as their share in the European browser market has all but halved since 2008, sitting glumly below Google Chrome and Mozilla FireFox.
