Group files new complaint with EU against Microsoft
BRUSSELS, Feb 22 (Reuters) A group of Microsoft rivals and customers filed a new complaint with the European Commission on Wednesday, accusing the U.S. software giant of competing unfairly.
The European Committee for Interoperable Systems, which dates back to 1989 and includes IBM, Oracle, Sun Microsystems, Nokia, RealNetworks and others, said in a statement Microsoft ''threatens to deny enterprises and individual consumers real choice.'' The group said Microsoft Office software was one example of a Microsoft product that does not permit rivals to interoperate properly with the Windows operating system, preventing them from competing.
