European Union Fines Microsoft $731 Million, Google Next

The Seattle based company is in hot seat once again.

The member countries of the European Union had fined $732 million dollars or about 561 Million Euros.

Why? Well here is the reason.

Today, the EU had finally said it is enough Microsoft! We have had enough. The failure of the company to offer users with other browser options had put the company in a bad light. And if this is not enough, the Union had also expressed the idea of doing the same thing for other companies.

Attorneys are now scrambling on how to fix the issue. They just received a notice that their company breached an agreement, something that they inked with the EU countries back in 2009.

The contract said that Microsoft will ensure users have the option of what type of browser to use instead of using the default and obsolete Microsoft Internet Explorer.

Now bear this in mind that the breach is not recent. The team investigated and based their decision on complaints filed from March 2011 to July 2012.

During this time, some 15 million users of Microsoft’s operating system – WindowsXP and Windows Vista and Windows 7, were not allowed to use other browsers than IE.

Tech journalists say this is the first time in history that the EU and their anti-trust authorities have issued fines against a multi billion software company.

Proof that there are no untouchables in Europe unlike in the Philippines, where politicians are untouchables.
