Lillis place for rants and musing about life, universe and the whole rest. Mostly left, mostly sarcastic, sometimes in german, sometimes in Lilli-english.

As you might see soon, english is not my mothertongue. And since english speaking people are used to others stumble around in their language, I hope I don't make too much of an idiot of myself here. So - my deepest apologies adressed to the English Language for not worshipping her better.

Microsoft fights back EU fine
I can't see any wrong in trying them to do it, after all it' their money the
EU wants to have from Microsoft. But that leads too many open questions for me. I can see the reasons the EU had, but I'm not really sure, they're doing the right thing, because it's still everyone's choice what OS to install. If I can change to Linux why shouldn't others be able to do this or get a Mac?
I'm not sure that protecting the customers from wrong decisions is a right thing to do for a state. But that would mean that each customer is an informed one, which is dumb to think, too. So why fining them and not just having them inform their user exactly what he's doing and if there are alternatives?
