    The European Commission is launching two new anti-competition investigations against US computer giant Microsoft.
    The first will look at whether Microsoft unfairly ties its Explorer internet browser to its Windows operating system.

    In a parallel investigation, the Commission will look at the interoperability of Microsoft software with rival products.

    Microsoft agreed to comply with Brussels' previous ruling in October.

    "This initiation of proceedings does not imply that the Commission has proof of an infringement," said the Commission in a statement.

    "It only signifies that the Commission will further investigate the case as a matter of priority."

    Microsoft has yet to comment.

    It would server the EU right if MS decided not to supply any more products to all the official EU bodies. Let them seek out the alternatives then they would realise what MS is providing with its near monoploy is in fact "probably" the best and most comprehensive set of PC tools available.
