EU contemplates a tough regulatory line on Microsoft

The FT reports that: “Microsoft faces having to make radical changes to meet European regulatory concerns that go well beyond what is being demanded of it in the US.” “The measures under consideration would force Microsoft to change the way it produces and sells its Windows operating system and Media Player software, and to provide a large amount of technical information to competitors” said the report, “…it is understood that the authorities are considering asking Microsoft to separate its media software Media Player from Windows.”
