Infamy, Infamy you have all got it in for me

VOLISH SPINSTERS have accused the EU of working with its rivals and withholding documents in a bid to stuff up Microsoft's defence in its anti-trust case.

Vole has produced a 16-page complaint posted on its website for reporters to have a gander.

It all started when a disclosure was intended to meet a requirement that Microsoft make it easier for rival software companies to write programs that work well with Windows was declared unfit by an independent analyst Neil Barrett.

Vole has accused the commission of waiting until February 13 to supply it with copies of documents related to Barrett's ruling. When it got the records Microsoft said that it was clear that the Commission had encouraged Microsoft's rival to educate Barrett in a manner detrimental to Microsoft.

It claims that the EC had been "in secret collaboration" with its rivals, thus preventing the company from knowing whether "the content of the communications was distorted or accurate."
