The EU Can't Leave IE Alone

The European Union is latched on tighter to Microsoft's ankle than a pit bull after a few Starbucks drinks.

I thought I was having a '90s flashback when I heard that the EU has filed a formal complaint about Microsoft's practice of bundling the browser with the operating system. But there it was again, charging Redmond with illegal bundling.

Haven't any of these ministers looked at Firefox's market share lately? Plus, bundling the browser may or may not be legal, but hasn't Microsoft been doing this for nearly 15 years?
