Bill Gates claims that Microsoft is dedicated to cooperation with the European Union with antitrust demands.

The EU feels that the company hasn’t been 100% cooperative and was not happy with the way Microsoft’s stripped down version of Windows XP was presented.

“Anything they want us to do better, I will listen very carefully and make sure we are very responsive,” said Gates.

According to a CNN article,

“The Commission has also reminded Microsoft (Research) that it could face fines that may amount to as much as $5 million a day if it failed fully to implement the sanctions.

The Commission’s demands stem from a March 2004 ruling that Microsoft abused its near-monopoly in the Windows operating system and must change its business practices.”
