The EU has slammed the expected fine on Microsoft. A couple of other interesting things apart from just the fine.

Microsoft will have to offer two versions of its windows software - one with the media player bundled and one without. Also, MS will have to share some of its code and open it up for competition. They are likely to appeal the case. I dunno the technical details of codes, but having an installed base, in this case, creates 'unfair' competitive advantage for MS. Maybe Ramki can throw some light on this.

Also, Red Hat, the open source software company showed better financial results on the back of the rising number of linux users.
