Microsoft backpedals on Korea threat

Filed under
Microsoft

Microsoft has apparently stepped back from a threat to stop selling Windows in Korea.

A spokesman at the software giant's Korean office told the Yonhap news agency: " Microsoft has invested over $1bn in the Korean market so far, and every year Korean companies buy more than $100m worth of our products.

"In light of this, we have never thought of negative plans like withdrawing business or delaying Windows product launches."

Full Story.

too bad!

It's a shame, as I have no doubt Microsoft pulling out of the market would be the best thing that could possibly happen to computing in Korea, or any other country they might feel like threatening.

Please Microsoft, punish Australia next.... I swear we've been very, very naughty! (I happen to live in Australia)

You scum-imbibing liar!

"In light of this, we have never thought of negative plans like withdrawing business or delaying Windows product launches."

Cnet, ZDnet,Linuxtoday.com, foxnews and about 10 other news sources report that you certainly DID threaten to remove your company and upgrade ability from the Korean Penninsula.

I can't think of an entity I dispise more...Well there is one in particular but I would have to travel extensively to destroy them. Microsoft we can do via the blog.
