EU Fines Microsoft $1.3 Billion

Posted by in Industry News

European antitrust regulators have fined Microsoft $1.3 Billion for not complying with a 2004 judgement regarding Microsoft abusing its market dominance.
The fine is the largest in history ever dealt by the EU commission, and makes the total value of fines imposed on Microsoft total $2.5 Billion dollars in todays current values.

This news got me thinking, are Microsoft still considered Evil? Why did they get accused of evil over the years? Is it because they have incredibley large scale software applications that have benefited society? Its all a bit of a blur these days.
