he European Commission, the EU's executive body, announced Tuesday that it will investigate whether Microsoft followed through with "antitrust commitments it made in 2009." One of the main tenets of the agreement was that Microsoft would provide customers with a "browser choice screen" that allows Windows users to choose a browser other than Microsoft's Internet Explorer. The EU alleges that the choice screen has not been provided to users since February 2011. Microsoft says it missed delivering the screen to certain PCs that came with one particular Windows 7 update, while other customers using the original version of Windows 7, as well as Windows XP, and Windows Vista, did have the screen. The EU said that the penalties for non-compliance could be severe.
