As far as Google goes:
They've had their hand twisted a few times by the EU already int he past years and came down from 24 months to just 9 in a few steps already.
if MS was acting like a spiteful brat and pulled all their products from the European market.
Living in Europe: I'd love nothing better than MSFT to redraw from the market: good riddance! The market could be shared by apple, the various linux flavors, solaris, FreeBSD, NetBSD, OpeBSD, HPUX, OSF-1, ...
Just thinking of what would all become possible on a huge scale without that dominant stagnating force is simply mind blowing.
But unfortunately it'll not happen: MSFT will appear to give in only to wiggle out of anything they agree to regardless, just like they did with the "N" versions of windows.
For all I care the EU can fine MSFT into oblivion.
I'd expect all of them to have to lower it even more in the future.
