Microsoft battle with Europe takes new twist

Microsoft accuses European Commission of innapropriate behaviour as battle of wills between the two continues

A new development has emerged in the battle between Microsoft and the
European Commission after the software giant accused it of setting up
inappropriate contacts between its key rivals and an independent observer,
according to reports.

Microsoft said the commission had collaborated with its rivals and an
independent trustee that was inconsistent with the commission’s role as a
neutral regulator and the trustee’s role as an independent monitor, reported The
Times.

The commission has spent the last three months stating that Microsoft has not
complied with an order to allow competitor servers to work properly with
Microsoft-produced operating system Windows.
