    Now MS should get at least a month off until the EU Politburo in Brussels files the next anti-American lawsuit and needlessly wastes even more money.

    Meanwhile, in a related case...

    Thats sad Microsoft has to go and give away thier trade secrets.

    Now on the stereo matter thast BS!!! I personally know car stereos like the back of my hand. To install an aftermarket stereo (which ussualy is better) all you need is a 30$ plastic piece that fits your certian car. This is simply a way to force you to buy aftermarket though, and thats just not right! Yet I guess it doesn't really affect me I'm the kid you yell at to turn THAT DAMN BASS DOWN!!! and I already have the best aftermarket CD/DVD player, amp kit, amps, subwoofers, crossfader, and equalizer not much else I can buy... :)

    Wolvie, the bit about the car stereo was SATIRE...a joke. To point how it makes no sense to do an analogous thing to MS in real life.

    "In that ruling, the commission also ordered Microsoft to disclose more Windows code to allow rival software makers to develop programs that work as well with Windows as Microsoft's own programs."

    W....T....F?

    If I were running MS I would just say screw Europe and not sell anything else to them. Let em all try and convert everything to Macs in a week.

    I wonder how they can tolerate such socialist BS. "Well, this softwarre developer sucks and makes really crappy shit that no one wants....and you make really good stuff...so give your code to that guy."

    pointless thread... if you were not so interested in finding a thread to attack the french population, you would know that more than a dozen states in the US filed charges a few years ago against Microsoft for the same reasons....

    if you buy a car, you don't want the dealer to tell you that you HAVE to take and pay for needless options likes GPS, big speakers, multi-cd players, and others ??

    and why don't you talk about the Japanese, the Chinese, and the British who also filed charges against Microsoft?

    As for the money, what do you care? it's not yours....

    The money is mine. I own MS stock. Who said anything about the French population? Have trouble reading? With the hostile tone of your response, it is not surprising that you think a thread about the EU equals an attack on the French. Paranoid? Or justified fear?

    Good point.... :bow2:

    I don't really care who you "attack", couldn't care less, but seing the previous posts about the EU, seems like US people take France as the capital of the EU, and that the French are responsible for all the bad things happenning in and around the EU... (unless I'm wrong)
