They must be feeling a little punchy at Microsoft this week. First the European High Court upheld the fines and sanctions given to Microsoft in 2004 and then Google rolls out a free "power point-like" app, while IBM unveils a suite of free office tools, Lotus Symphony.
"The European Court of First Instance this week upheld fines and sanctions that antitrust officials had levied against Microsoft Corp. in 2004. According to the court in Luxembourg, Microsoft improperly used its dominance in computer operating systems to stiff-arm competitors in two other markets. As a consequence, Microsoft must pay more than $1 billion in fines, offer European computer vendors a version of Windows without its media-playing program and help competing makers of server software work with Microsoft's products," the LA Times reported today.
