Microsoft has finally turned over technical documetation to the EC that may let non-Microsoft work-group servers achieve interoperability with Windows servers.

The EC is not amused that it has taken Microsoft so long to comply with its 2004 anti-competition ruling (they have a point -- two years to turn over server interface specs?), and have asked potential licensees to review the documentation.

An EU press release said: "The European Commission can confirm that Microsoft has submitted a revised version of the Technical Documentation with a view to meeting the requirements of the Commission’s March 2004 Decision."

"In December 2004, the Court of First Instance (CFI) rejected a request from Microsoft to suspend the application of the March 2004 Decision. Microsoft subsequently committed to and missed a number of deadlines for delivering complete and accurate specifications."
