Brussels: Microsoft has agreed finally to take steps to comply with the European Commission’s landmark 2004 antitrust decision against it, the EU executive said on 22 October.
The Commission said in a statement that it “has ensured that Microsoft will now take the necessary steps to comply with its obligations under the Commission’s 2004 decision”.
Microsoft will make available to so-called “open source” software developers information they need so their programmes work smoothly with Microsoft’s Windows operating system for personal computers.
Microsoft has also sliced high royalties, which it had until now insisted upon, for interoperability information, the Commission said.
