Microsoft Fined $32 Million



Microsoft has been fined $32 million by South Korea’s fair trade commision. They are calling for Microsoft to either remove the Media Player and Instant Messenger from Windows, or include competing software. Microsoft has said that such changes may require it to “delay offering new versions in South Korea”, or withdraw Windows from the South Korea market entirely.
