Microsoft faces a record $613m fine from the European Commission. National competition authorities supported the record fine at a meeting yesterday.

Mario Monti, the competition commissioner said that the fine is in addition to his "remedies".

Microsoft intend to appeal the fine, saying it could not have known it was breaking EU competition law.

I said it once today, so I'll say it again... Fuck (insert organization here) Microsoft!... Limey bastards...

When companies compete in the US they have to know our laws and follow them, yet microsoft is pleeding ignorance for doing the opposite of what their expected to do in the exact same case? Comeon...
