28 Sep, 2004

Microsoft said Monday that it is prepared to "put a stripped-down version of Windows on the market if its appeal to suspend a March antitrust ruling that found in favor of the European Union," according to the Associated Press. The original landmark decision included a "record 497 million (US$600 million) fine as well as orders to hand over software code to rivals in the server market, and to change the way it packages its own Media Player software into Windows."

"We'll certainly be ready to comply," Microsoft's chief lawyer, Brad Smith, said at a news conference. He said the U.S. software giant had "spent millions of dollars over the past few months" to prepare a version of its ubiquitous operating system that would satisfy EU regulators.
