+ - Institute urges the EU to unbundle Windows

Submitted by

lordtoran writes "A think tank in Europe called The Globalisation Institute has recommended that the EU Commission require the unbundling of Microsoft Windows from new computers to promote competition in the Operating System (OS) software market.

Noting in a policy briefing the EU Commission's recent antitrust victory in the European Court of First Instance, which in part directed Microsoft to unbundle its Media Player product from the Windows OS, the Globalisation Institute says:

"Examining a more central issue — the lack of choice in desktop operating systems — is now needed if the Commission is to encourage a marketplace in which [the] vision of thriving competition is enacted. This briefing argues for the Commission's thinking on Microsoft's operating system monopoly to go to its logical conclusion and support the "unbundling" of Windows from desktop computers.""
