26 Sep 2007
Antoine Gutzwiller disputed the fact that he had no choice but to buy the €599 Acer notebook with the ubiquitous operating system and software products including Microsoft Works, PowerDVD, and Norton AV.
The court of Puteaux in France ruled that the PC giant, which is the world's third largest computer vendor, should refund Gutzwiller €311.85 to cover the full cost of software loaded on his machine.

EU: Green MEP: 'EU procurement rules possibly exclude Microsoft'
10 April 2008 - EU and Europe-wide - Legal Aspects
The EU procurement rules possibly exclude Microsoft from current or future procurement procedures, says Heide Rühle MEP, internal market spokeswoman for the Greens / EFA in the European Parliament.
Rühle yesterday wrote the European Commission asking if the EU's procurement rules should apply to Microsoft. According to the rules, bidders who are guilty of serious misconduct and who have been convicted, should be excluded of procurement procedures. "Obviously this also applies to Microsoft", Rühle writes. "I am curious to see whether the EU institutions in the future switch to other products." http://ec.europa.eu/idabc/en/document/7567
