Microsoft, EC tangle over Vista security

In a statement Tuesday, EU Commission spokesman on competition Jonathan Todd said that the Commission believes that diversity and innovation in the security software market could be threatened if Microsoft doesn't allow reputable third-party security vendors to compete on an equal footing for customers.
