Microsoft ready to comply with EU orders

Microsoft has challenged the European Commission’s finding that the software giant abused its dominance of PC operating systems. But its top counsel said negotiations remain the preferred course.The company asked the Court of First Instance in Luxembourg to suspend remedies demanded by the EU until the case is completed. These require the software giant to sell a modified version of Windows and offer additional information to rival makers of server computers.

Chief counsel Brad Smith said the company plans to argue Thursday and Friday–and possibly Saturday–that although the company has spent millions of dollars preparing to comply with the orders, it would suffer irreparable damage if it did so.

“We’ll be ready to comply with whatever the court orders,” Smith said.
