Am vested, so maybe thats why i feel strongly about this haha.
"But Microsoft failed to stick to the deal for some 15 million installations of Windows 7 software in Europe from May 2011 until July 2012. The company admitted the failure last year, adding that it was a mistake."

the fine is around 60$ per installation. real steep i would say. I also believe that MSFT may rise in medium term as it has good scope in the enterprise segment & also in view of royalty payments from android manufacturers.

any suggestions on which level to buy.

Linux users file EU complaint against Microsoft

MADRID — A Spanish group representing open-source software users has filed a complaint against Microsoft to the European Commission, in a new challenge to the Windows developer following a hefty fine earlier this month.

The 8,000-member Hispalinux, which represents users and developers of the Linux operating system in Spain, said Microsoft had made it difficult for users of computers sold with its Windows 8 platform to switch to Linux and other operating systems.

Microsoft developing seven-inch Surface tablet: Report

SAN FRANCISCO - Microsoft is developing a new lineup of Surface tablets, including a 7-inch version expected to go into mass production later this year, the Wall Street Journal reported, citing people familiar with the company’s plans.

Microsoft executives felt they needed to keep pace with the growing popularity of smaller tablets like Google’s 7-inch Nexus and the 7.9-inch iPad Mini introduced by Apple last October, one person told the paper.

Did not try on the Surface, not sure whether can be used both office and personal usages?

Breaking the Surface

SINGAPORE — Microsoft announced it was going to make its own branded tablet running its touch-friendly Windows 8 operating system last October. Two weeks ago, the Surface RT tablet finally landed in Singapore.

If you think the lines are blurring between PCs and tablets, wait till you try the Surface RT.
