EU slams Intel with record $1.45 billion fine

Another example of this antitrust legislation in our beloved EU. Intels second quarter result was almost $400 million in minus because of the EU antitrust fine of $1.45 billion they had to pay two months ago.

Actually while Opera may have initated the complaint, both Google and Mozilla joined in. The European Commision does need to enforce the laws, and if MS was abusing their monopoly in violation of EU law, as they have found to be doing in the US, the EU, South Korea and Japan, then the European Commision needs to take action. And that's even if they don't receive any complaint. (Note that despite what some people seem to think, Norway is not part of the EU, even though they are bound by most European law as they are part of the European Economic Area)

Let's not forget Microsoft was nearly split up in to two by the US. And Microsoft are perfectly entitled to challenge the decision if they believe it has no merit. The reason they haven't is likely because they know they are breaking the law.

BTW, the reason why Apple does not have these problems is because as much as many of us may dislike Apple (I certainly do) they do not have a monopoly so not surprisingly, they've never been found of abusing their monopoly position. If Apple did have a monopoly position you can bet your ass they would be investigated in multiple countries for their practices.

That's complete bull****. You don't need an web browser to use the internet. Just because some people don't know the difference between the web and the internet, doesn't mean it's acceptable to spread false claims like that on these forums which are after all intended for a technical audience who should know the difference. Windows 7E will come with Windows Update which uses the internet, activation which can use the internet, in some versions Remote Desktop, ditto, a e-mail client, unless they removed it a command line FTP client which can be used to download stuff including a web browser if you so desire and other servers and client which can connect to the internet in various ways.

Heck for some people IM and bittorrent is more important then a web browser

Fair enough argument, but how many rookie users know enough to be able to use command line FTP etc to download a browser. Can Windows Update be used to download and install IE or Firefox? Where will an IM or bittorrent client come from without a browser to use for the download.

Again, how many rookie/novice/noob users have enough knowledge to use command line tools for ftp? If they did have that knowledge, then they won't BE novices, now would they??
