Europe And USA To Investigate Mozilla's ClaimsJust slightly more than a week ago, Mozilla and Google have accused Microsoft of using unfair practices to block competitive browsers on their Windows 8 RT platform, now, it looks like things did not get unnoticed.

Recently, the US Senate Judiciary Committee has announced that they will investigate allegations of the anti-competitive behavior by Microsoft. In addition to that, the European Commission will be joining the party as well.

However, although EU and Microsoft have struck a deal back in 2009, the European antitrust regulators noted that it’s not yet clear, whether this agreement includes tablets or just “PCs”.

With the upcoming launch of Windows 8, it will be interesting to see how things progress from here.

      Because it’s Apple that won’t allow any competition while Microsoft isn’t allowing any competition by design.

      Because iOS is not a monopoly (or not convicted of being an illegal monopoly)?
