Microsoft-EU anti-trust talks collapse
The European Commission's competition talks with Microsoft Corp. have collapsed, European Competition Commission Mario Monti said Thursday.
In a prepared statement read out to journalists Monti said that despite strenuous efforts by Microsoft to meet the European Commission's concerns, a settlement of the case "has not been possible."
"Therefore we will propose next Wednesday that the Commission adopts a decision," the competition commissioner said.
Monti added that a precedent setting legal ruling is in the best interest of consumers and competition.
