Microsoft’s having a swell time in Europe

Last week, Microsoft decided they will no longer appeal the 497 million Euros fine levied against them by the European Commission back in 2004. The EC has found Microsoft guilty of anti-competitive practices and ordered the company to open up access to its server protocols and sell the Windows operating system without Windows Media Player.

However, there seems to be no end in sight for Microsoft’s woes. Macworld reported that a UK government watchdog have urged schools to stop making licensing deals with Microsoft because of anti-competitive practices.

Across the pond, a Texas SMU-Cox School of Business have done away with Windows PCs and instead installed Macs in some of their classrooms and labs. “By installing Intel Macs, we’re enhancing and diversifying our computer platforms by keeping Windows XP while adding OS X,” said Allen Gwinn, senior director of technology for the Cox School.
