Submission Vista Under Fire in Europe

Daeward writes: A coalition of Microsoft's rivals is complaining that the Windows Vista operating system will perpetuate practices found illegal in the European Union nearly three years ago. The group, which includes IBM, Nokia, Sun Microsystems, Adobe, Oracle and Red Hat, said its complaints made last year were yet to be addressed just days before Vista is due for release. "Microsoft has clearly chosen to ignore the fundamental principles of the Commission's March 2004 decision," said Simon Awde, chairman of the European Committee for Interoperable Systems (ECIS). Microsoft said it had no comment.
