Not in agreement. I would not be happy with someone telling me I have to distribute AND update somebody else's software on my dime simply because the end user wanted to use my software, too. I might agree to remove a function/program from my distro in interest of peace and competition, but nothing else. If a commission or governmental body can force Microsoft to do that guess how that precedent will trickle down on everybody else! Not liking this at all. If it were me in charge at MS I'd tell the EU they can go to Linux, we don't sell in EU anymore. And that the only Linux interoperability we MIGHT support is authored/distributed in the US.
