Imagine being exposed by your arch rival and fined as a result by regulatory authorities. That is what has just happened to Microsoft as the European Union (EU) fined the software giant a sum of Eur561million ($731million) for anti trust breaches relating to its web browser (internet explorer). Apparently, Microsoft had reached an agreement with regulators to give buyers of its operating software options to choose any browser they so wish on buying windows 7.
