EU have dropped Microsoft Antitrust case

The Microsoft Antitrust case has been dropped by the EU thanks to a browser ballot. European regulators announced today that they had officially dropped their antitrust case against Microsoft now that they are giving users the options of which browser they want to install on their system. Amongst the total of 12 options will be Firefox, Opera, Chrome and Safari.

The New York Times have even stated recently that there will be an update to the operating system to give European Users of Internet Explorer an option to switch to an alternative.

While this seems a rather hollow victory for Microsoft it is in fact a huge money saver for the Redmond Company as they won’t have to fork out millions for a legal battle. They have already paid fines of 1.68 billion and 2.44 billion euros to the European Union. This browser ballot system will come into effect in March 2010 and the “choice screen update” will be available for five years.
