Korea’s anti-trust regulator Wednesday (Ed: Dec 7th) imposed a fine of roughly 33 billion won ($31.9 million) on Microsoft for its violation of the nation’s fair trade rule.

Microsoft will be required to offer two versions of Windows within six months - one stripped of thus far incorporated programs (Ed: Messenger and Media Player) and the other that includes most software available here.
