Brussels blow to Microsoft upheld

    A European court has turned down an appeal by Microsoft to delay hard-hitting sanctions from the European Commission.
    The US software giant went to the European Court of First Instance to try to get the penalties for abuse of monopoly suspended.

    Microsoft wanted to delay the opening up of aspects of its Windows software system to rivals, and a record EU fine.

    The court dismissed Microsoft's plea "in its entirety".

    Microsoft said after the judgement that it remained confident of coming to an agreement with the Commission.

    'Irreparable damage'

    In March, the European Commission imposed the sanctions on Microsoft after finding that it had abused the virtual monopoly of its Windows computer operating system.

    The Commission demanded Microsoft change its business practices, and levied a fine of 497m euros (£331m; $613m), the biggest it had ever imposed in an anti-trust case.

    Michelle, you are a criminal. You commited a crime, right here, on this msg board. Although I won't see it, you WILL go to JAIL, at least for a night.

    Advice: Don't sit next to BUBBA.

    And why is this idiot still a member of UKWebmasterworld.com?

    I'm sure Temi does not condone crime. She gave the idiot time to, "work it out", yet after all his crybaby apologies to Temi, none have been sent my way. Even if they were, once I pulled the legal trigger, his arse is going to jail.

    Word is, Michelle is already in jail or bailed out, plus facing more time. I know folks who know him. Most don't like him. Wait, most HATE him.
