1995 consent decree

  The 1995 case was about anti-competitive marketing of Microsoft's operating
  system.  Specifically, requiring original equipment manufacturers to pay a
  fee even on computers that didn't have Microsoft's OS installed.  The new
  petition concerns Microsoft's practice of conditioning the license to
  install Windows on an agreement to also install the IE browser.
