Novell Statement On EC Microsoft Decision

24 March 2004

  • While Novell has not yet seen the final decision of the European Commission or had a chance to thoroughly review the remedy related to interoperability issues, Novell believes that the Commission's findings, decision and remedies will improve competition, stimulate innovation and benefit consumers of information technology services and solutions.
  • Novell is pleased that the European Commission has sought to allow international IT companies to operate on a level playing field with Microsoft. The Commission is right to intervene when it considers that the competitive process and consumers are being harmed by the actions of monopolists.
  • Novell will have further comment when it has had a chance to review the decision and remedy in their entirety.
