TELECOMWORLDWIRE-19 September 2002-ProComp claims that Microsoft is not sticking to federal government agreement (C)1994-2002 M2 COMMUNICATIONS LTD http://www.m2.com
ProComp - an association of trade groups and companies including Oracle, Sun Microsystems and AOL Time Warner - has written to the US Justice Department alleging that Microsoft Corp is not following the rules of its agreement with the federal government.
The organisation claims that Microsoft is failing to allow Windows users to remove access to the company's programs and choose products from its competitors. ProComp goes on to state that the Program Access software that Microsoft has made available that allows Windows users to choose its competitors' products is unnecessarily difficult to install due to its size.
A Microsoft spokesperson has stated that ProComp is "playing politics" as the group had ample opportunity to raise any issues with Microsoft itself.
