Slashdot just pointed me to an article on ZDNet titled "EU rejects Microsoft's licence offer". The article talks about the way Microsoft tries to dodge the sanctions the EU put on it because they were abusing their monopoly. This time, it seems the EU holds on to their sanctions and will really demand of Microsoft to comply. I'm wondering for how long this will be... If Microsoft can exclude Open Source development from making use of those sanctions, the whole procedure is pointless, since Open Source is the single largest competitor of Microsoft server products. I hope the EU will hold on to their principles.
