    Microsoft is under growing pressure to speed up compliance with EU laws
    Microsoft has bowed to pressure from the European Commission to name a new version of its Windows XP software, Windows XP Home Edition N.
    It is the US software company's latest step in complying with the EC, following a record anti-trust fine imposed on it last year.

    The 'N' in the new name stands for "not with media player".

    The EC said Microsoft's first choice, Windows XP Reduced Media Edition, could have put consumers off the new version.

    Brussels last year fined Microsoft 497m euros ($640m; £343m) and ordered it to sell a version of its Windows XP software without its Media Player.
