Let them eat Redhat (and whatever the Chinese come up with)

It’s the EU way – if you can’t compete, sue. If you can’t shake them down, legalize theft of the competition’s product.

EU Observer:

Ms Kroes warned that the company founded by Bill Gates faces additional fines of €3 million a day from the end of this month if it sticks to its recalcitrance.

She added "It is the first time ever in the 49 year history of the EU that the European Commission has had to fine a company for failure to comply with an antitrust law."»
That is, when member states aren’t using tariffs and public ownership to actively create “champions” and monopolies.

The fuse is lit!
