Yes but they still have to comply. They couldnt stand increased fines indefinitely and the higher the price the more people will look at potential alternative solutions. GNU/Linux, at least, is becoming better known amongst computer literate people making IT decisions.
What else could the EU realistically do? Banning sales isnt realistic.
btw MS share price dropped significantly (2%) so the marketplace thinks it must have an effect. Interestingly RedHat prices jumped temporarily today before dropping back. Coincidence?
