After investigating for more than five years, EC found Microsoft guilty and levied an historic fine of US$ 613 million and suggested remedies to the company's products. Microsoft further appealed this ruling in the European Court of First Instance which heard the case between 24th and 28th of April 2006 and would give its ruling in the first quarter of 2007.
