 New lawsuit against MS, now regarding Windows Messenger
New lawsuit against MS, now regarding Windows Messenger

dwergs says ( 12 Apr 2004 ):

 

South Korea's largest Internet portal, Daum Communications Corp., launched a 10 billion won ($9 million) antitrust lawsuit against Microsoft yesterday, demanding that the U.S. software giant excludes the Windows Messenger software from its Windows XP operating system.

"Microsoft continues to abuse their market dominance in computer operating systems by bundling the Windows Messenger into their Windows XP software [...] Daum Communications suffered significant losses with its instant messaging services due to Microsoft's unlawful actions," said the company.

The lawsuit comes less than a month after the European Commission fined Microsoft for a record 497 million euros ($600 million) for antitrust violations and ordered them to exclude Windows Media Player from their Windows operating system and make available some of the operating system's source code. Microsoft is expected to appeal against the commission's ruling.

Huge or extremely tiny display pictures are allowed now in MSN Messenger thanks to this plugin for Messenger Plus!. Now if you have the plugin installed and still want to switch back to the conventional 96x96 px dimensions we recommend installing Timothy's Internet Explorer Display Picture plugin 2 for easy display picture chosing while browsing the web or images on your hard drive.
