Mozilla accuses Microsoft of anticompetitive behavior with Windows RT

http://j.mp/Kqy7cx  (IT World)

    Mozilla yesterday accused Microsoft of withholding APIs necessary to
    build a competitive browser for Windows RT, and said the behavior "may
    have antitrust implications."  Harvey Anderson, Mozilla's general
    counsel, and Asa Dotzler, director of Firefox, weighed in with the
    accusations late Wednesday in a pair of blog posts.  Anderson warned
    that Microsoft's decision to allow only Internet Explorer 10 (IE10) in
    one mode of Windows RT "signal[s] an unwelcome return to the digital
    dark ages where users and developers didn't have browser choices."
    Dotlzer was more direct. "Microsoft is trying to lock out competing
    browsers when it comes to Windows running on ARM chips," he said.
