+ - Windows 7 Eyed For Antitrust Violations

Submitted by Preedit
Preedit writes: The committee that oversees Microsoft's compliance with the 2002 antitrust settlement has got its hands on Windows 7. The Technical Committee is checking to see if the software meets the settlement's terms. Among other things, it's looking at whether Windows 7 favors Microsoft apps over third party programs, according to InformationWeek. The story also notes that Vista SP1 includes a number of changes that were added to satisfy the committee. For instance, it eliminates several browser overrides where Vista ignored users' default preferences and automatically launched Explorer. Windows 7 is due sometime around 2010.
