Microsoft didn't pay - they appealed. And lost the appeal, but got fine reduced a tiny bit.
I think a billion dollar fine should be appealed - that's a crap-load of money even for Intel.
In any case - don't like monopolies, very happy AMD is still around. What ever Intel tried (kickbacks to OEMs) didn't work anyway - AMD lost OEM market share only after Intel finally got their chips in shape.

I wouldn't mind if they handed it all to AMD for R&D on chips worth owning.

And Corporations always legitimately make "their" money.

They've got to get cash from somewhere to keep up the merry-go-round of subsidization. Trying to keep the eurodollar from opening an economic black hole in the middle of Europe is a full-time job for the eurocrats.

Is it 1.4 billion like in the title, or 1.3 billion like in the article?

Just asking since, while only 1 decimal point, it's also 100 million USD.

it's 1.06 Billion euros. The exchange rate fluctuated between writing the title and the article.

Of course they appealed it. Why should they feel like they have to obey the law? What a load of shit. I hope your appeal burns in hell, Intel!
