You cant have it both ways. Where was the outcry of the people of the EU when all of this was going on?? Im sure that everyone knew what the EU courts were after ... and whose pockets were going to get raided! Now that Microsoft has decided on how they are going to respond to the judgment, everyone is crying foul!
It may sound harsh, but you ( as in the EU ) made your own bed, now its time to lay in it..
