Microsoft's gotten a large fine from the European Commission for not following the rules:

EU Competition Commissioner Neelie Kroes said she had "no alternative but to levy penalty payments" against Microsoft, adding that "no company is above the law".

"I regret that, more than two years after the decision... Microsoft has still not put an end to its illegal conduct," Ms Kroes said.
The behavior in question: failing to give rival companies proper access to make products for Windows, and failure to debundle Windows Media Player.
