What is The EU Thinking?

The EU is so intent on Microsoft bashing that it sees every move that will obsolete other technology as an abuse of monopolistic power.

Computer security depends on diversity and innovation in the field of security software, (and) such diversity and innovation could be at risk if Microsoft was allowed to foreclose the existing competition in the security software markets

So making improvements to the Windows OS that eliminates the need for other security products is a no-no in the EU's mind. Simply wonderful. Why not just pass a law that Microsoft can't release new products and be done with it?

I would be suprised if someone within Microsoft isn't simply going to write off the continent as a lost cause and move on. i doubt it would happen, but someone has to be thinking it.
