EU Tells Microsoft Source Code Isn't Enough
Via The Inquirer.
THE WALL STREET JOURNAL has seen a confidential document from the European Commission telling Microsoft that offering source code wouldn't be enough to avoid antitrust action.
That explains why a representative of the Commission told the BBC earlier this week that Microsoft had decided to hold a press party when it could have popped round the corner and had real discussions.
The Wall Street Journal exclusive sight of the memo shows that behind the scenes there is a real war going on. Microsoft faces the prospect of paying €2 million a day in fines if it doesn't comply with the Commission's terms.
