M$ is Threatening Korea Again
Microsoft, the world’s biggest software maker, has renewed its threat to pull the Windows operating system out of Korea, if the ongoing investigation by the nation’s antitrust agency doesn’t turn out to be in its favor.
oo Jae-sung, president of Microsoft Korea, the software giant’s local subsidiary, Wednesday made the remarks during a telephone interview with The Korea Times.
``For now, who can foretell what will happen? But we recognized a tough (anti-Microsoft) stance at the Fair Trade Commission (FTC) and had to report related risks,’’ Yoo said.
``If the FTC urges Microsoft to remove code (bundled applications) from Windows, it would be difficult for us to do business in Korea,’’ he added.
