Microsoft Said Slow To Fix TDIs (Technical Documentation Issues)

 4:25 pm on Jun 25, 2008 (gmt 0)

Microsoft Corp was criticized on Tuesday for being slow to resolve problems in the technical documentation it was required to provide to rival software makers as part of its 2001 antitrust settlement.

Microsoft was required to issue licenses for companies who want to write programs for the Windows computer operating system, and also provide technical information about Windows to help make the programs work.

The Justice Department and states, who were also party to the antitrust suit, complained that Microsoft had acted too slowly in resolving technical information problems, known as "technical document issues" or TDIs.

It doesn't sound as though MS has been very prompt with these document requests. The EU had similar complaints about late documentation and has been increasing its fines because of it.
