EU Fines Microsoft €561 Million ($731m)Just a fraction of rumored $7.4 billion.

Now here is something that will finally come to an end, according to Europa Press, Microsoft was fined $731 million by EU for breaking the browser ballot agreement that was signed back in 2009.

The good news, at least for Microsoft, is that the fine is far smaller than some might have expected as it was supposed to be as high as $7.4 billion or a 10% of the annual turnover. According to a report, one of the main catalysts behind what it seems to be a small fine was a cooperation from Microsoft.
