Microsoft to alter Windows XP due antitrust case

Posted on Thursday, June 02 2005 @ 0:55 CEST by Thomas De Maesschalck
Microsoft agreed to make some changes in Windows XP in response to an antitrust court filing:
In a court filing on Wednesday, the U.S. Justice Department and some states charged that Web-related resources, such as saved HTML files, continued to be denoted by an Internet Explorer icon, even when it was not the default browser. Also, the filing said, disabling Internet Explorer in XP does not automatically delete user-created shortcuts pointing at the application.
The committe is also reviewing Internet Explorer 7 and Windows Longhorn. More info at CNET
