Windows 7: Windows 7 submitted for Antitrust Review

Windows 7 submitted for Antitrust Review

Microsoft has submitted the first Milestone of its upcoming operating system Windows 7 to the committee that oversees its antitrust compliance in the US according to an Computer World article. A Technical Committee will conduct middleware-related tests to ensure that Windows 7 is not giving Microsoft an unfair advantage over third party software running on the operating system.

Microsoft itself is keeping exposure of the new operating system to a minimum which could be a move to avoid Windows Vista sale drops due to the release of Windows 7 in a year or two.

Mike Cherry, an analyst with research group Directions on Microsoft, said that for Windows 7, Microsoft will likely keep the bells and whistles to a minimum so they can deliver “something reasonable they can complete by a reasonable date … Their goal will be to try to put Vista behind them,” he said.

Microsoft will surely have to lookout not only for its antitrust compliance in the US but also in Europe where it was heavily fined just recently for 1.3 Billion Dollar.
