Another classic Paul Thurrott snapshop – excerpt from the full post:
Microsoft's latest woes come courtesy of Opera, a Norwegian company that complained to the EU about the software giant's bundling practices and alleged undermining of Web standards. However, Opera is unique among non-Microsoft browser makers in that it did not make market share gains in 2008. Firefox, Apple Safari, and Google Chrome all gained on IE during this time period. Perhaps the problem is Opera, not Microsoft's business practices. After all, consumers do have choice; they're just not choosing Opera. And Google's browser was actually launched in late 2008: Apparently that company wasn't aware of the shackles Opera claims that Microsoft has around the industry.
