EU threatens Microsoft with Vista ban

The European Union will stop Microsoft selling its Vista operating system within EU borders if the software comes bundled with certain browsing, search or security functions.

Neelie Kroes, the EU's top antitrust regulator, wrote to Microsoft on 20 March expressing her concerns about the new software, according to a report in The Wall Street Journal.

In an interview with the paper, Kroes said that no decision had yet been taken on whether the EU would hold a formal investigation into Microsoft's Vista software. EU threatens Microsoft with Vista ban -
