The European Commission (EC) revealed Tuesday that it has reached a provisional decision in its investigation of Microsoft’s alleged anti-competitive practices. The EC has been investigating the server market as well as the market for media players.
Documents leaked to various European media suggest that the EC may request changes in the Windows operating system as well as impose fines. The Financial Times reported Sunday that the EC has set May 1 as a deadline for imposing penalties.
