EU Could Fine Microsoft For Shipping Its Products

Reuters is reporting that the European Union could fine Microsoft for including Internet Explorer in its OS as the default browser.

Apparently, by making its own product as the default at first boot, Microsoft is being anti-competitive, and provoking the fine-friendly EU regulators.

Their logic? Internet Explorer is the default browser post the initial installation, so that edges out other browsers. Hey, it’s not like you can use Internet Explorer to download whatever browser you want.

Probably EU should also consider punishing Microsoft for not providing options to download OSs other than Windows during installation. You know, this pushes people to use Windows and other OSs suffer due to this.
