The Free Software Foundation Europe has issued a statement welcoming the decision of the European Commission to fine Microsoft as a penalty for noncompliance. As you know, the Free Software Foundation Europe was invited by the European Commission to represent the interests of the Free Software movement in the case.

FSFE raises some arguments in its statement that I hadn't heard before, so I thought I should present them here to complete the picture. This is, after all, history we are living, and the explanation for Microsoft's alleged inability to comply earlier is intriguing. Also, it's important to remember who it was that did not quit and leave the field.

[Emphasis mine. -- grouch]
