Microsoft: Vista Launch In Europe On Track

Microsoft said Thursday it was on track to launch its Windows Vista operating system in Europe in January but again asked the European Commission to detail concerns it may have with the system. "The release of Vista, as far as we are concerned, remains on track.

The European Union's executive Commission, which has been involved in a long antitrust battle with the U.S. software company, this week warned Microsoft against foreclosing competition in computer security by tying new security features into Vista.The Commission also said on Tuesday it was up to Microsoft, as "a near monopolist to ensure compliance with EU antitrust rules in the new system and that it was misleading to imply that it could be the cause of delays.
