Well, here is an interesting piece of news for you today, earlier this year, Mozilla has complained about the possible restrictions for web browsers running on the Windows RT, which wasn’t left unnoticed by the EU itself.
Now, according to a new report, European Union regulators gave Microsoft a green light and will not continue the investigation.
Joaquin Almunia, the European Commissioner for Competition, said, “We have looked at Windows RT, and on the basis of our investigation so far, there are no grounds to pursue further investigation on this particular issue. But we will closely monitor all the elements of the Windows software and how Microsoft complies to [its] commitments.”
While Google did not comment on the news story, Mozilla’s Harvey Anderson has issued a somewhat carefully worded comment:
“We hope the European Commission is correct in its conclusions and users are not deprived of browser choice in Window RT operating systems,”
Next stop: browser ballot screen.
