因害怕遭到欧盟的又一次反垄断处罚,微软将在欧洲销售剥离了IE浏览器的Windows 7系统。Windows 7 to ship without IE in EuropeMicrosoft says it will send the newest version of its Windows operating system in Europe without its Internet Explorer web browser. The move is to counter pressure from European regulators.Microsoft will instead offer IE separately and on an easy-to-install basis to both computer manufacturers and users. The reversal comes shortly before the European Commission is due to rule on antitrust charges brought against Microsoft in January. The world's largest software company is charged wit abusing its dominant position by bundling its IE, shielding it from head-to-head rival products. Earlier the EU fined Microsoft 1.7 billion euros for bundling its media player, and forced the company to release a Windows version without it. Article/200906/74121
