Microsoft hit with fresh complaint over Office

Some of Microsoft's biggest rivals lodged a new complaint with the European Commission Wednesday over its Office applications suite and other, upcoming products, arguing that the company's business practices are shutting out competitors.

A coalition called the European Committee for Interoperable Systems, which includes vendors such as IBM, Nokia, Oracle, RealNetworks, and Red Hat, announced that it had made a formal complaint to the Commission over a "range of products present and future." The reference to future products is understood to be Microsoft's Vista desktop operating system, due for release later this year.
