WINDOWS Messenger, MSN Messenger-the two sides of a card?
Microsoft has bound IE browser lead to netscape nightmare lessons drawn from others’ mistakes, the threat of bound for MSN, netease DingLeiShen has the experience, "in fact many Chinese users know MSN messeger because of WindowsXP, it has made us bound in competition are at a disadvantage, because we don’t have this kind of bound ability. In the Internet field, the browser has been its occupied, the second client is IM, Microsoft have to do now is to through the browser and operating system messeger bound."
But this Microsoft global vice President, MSN global market and sales vice President ROM while mike in emphasizing "Microsoft WINDOWS operating system from no and MSN Messenger bound" at the same time, says "Microsoft’s MSN Messenger and other services and WINDOWS system are two completely can separate platform, WINDOWS will not affect the other gateway website use."
And to this, also have the professional told reporters, Microsoft is currently in the WINDOWS operating system built-in WINDOWS Messenger-this is Microsoft says the WINDOWS operating system from no and MSN Messenger bind of the reason, but WINDOWS Messenger and IM software MSN Messenger besides function outside a slightly different, equivalent to a card two sides, "ma3 jia3 take off to take off" relationship. "To the user to say is a product, two software account can be used, a friends list the same, but they are used, is a set of IM system of two of the two versions of the software, such as tencent QQ and enterprise software RTM, but WINDOWS Messenger version slightly low, users in the understanding of the Microsoft Messenger, more easily after to MSN Messenger."

DAUM against MICROSOFT case, actually dates back to 2001, is also the first time MICROSOFT Windows XP operating system will put forward with the intent of the instant communication software bound,-from it have been MICROSOFT Asia area of work, and as President of MICROSOFT Asia once he mike if say "never heard of South Korea lawsuit", there are several possibilities, a topic that is too sensitive, or simply is KouZiYan, although MSN is the abbreviation of "MICROSOFT NETWORK", although other people say that Windows Messenger, MSN Messenger is a set of system two versions, but MICROSOFT can still do not put in the NETWORK link to Windows of instant messaging software called "MSN"; -or ROM.

For South Korea peer antitrust litigation, MaHuaTeng said, from the European commission ruled Microsoft Windows operating system Windows Media Player software shall not be bound, to South Korea on two recent anti-monopoly lawsuit opinion, domestic enterprise actually should also strengthen the consciousness, "like Media Player in Europe, may not necessarily to the specific of the European company formed, and the European Union have hidden trouble this consciousness, etc.-and if damage, it is too late to act may be."
MaHuaTeng also admitted, "tencent has to related problem had understood, but should say domestic enterprise in this aspect is still relatively passive, perhaps this because similar case in China has no precedent to this idea, is not very clear, so we also hope to get the government to further support."
