    Microsoft has appealed against the case brought by the EU
    Microsoft is to pay $536m (£289m) to software maker Novell to resolve a long-standing complaint over alleged anti-competitive practices.
    The case centred on Novell's Netware software and releases of Microsoft's Windows operating system in the 1990s.

    Novell is to withdraw from a European Commission action against Microsoft.

    But it is still to pursue a similar case over claims from the mid-1990s when its WordPerfect software was in competition with Microsoft's Office.

    In reaching the settlement
