This is what it says in my paper dated Tuesday March 29, 2005
Microsoft agrees to a change of name.
Microsoft said yesterday it had agreed with European Union anti-trust regulators on a new name for Windows software sold in Europe.
Officials at the US software giant said they had accepted the European Union's offer to call the European version of Windows sold without Media Player Windows XP Home Edition N - with N standing for not with media player.
Microsoft's XP professional Edition will also include the "N" for versions sold without the media player, which allows users to see video or hear audio downloads.
Microsoft's lawyer, Horacio Gutierrea, told The Asociated Press his company had notified the EU head office of its decision to accept their name offer.
"We fear it may cause confusion for consumers buying the product, but we will adopt the commission's name in order to move forward and accelerate the pace of the implementation process"
The agreement is part of talks between the EU and Microsoft to implement an EU fine against Microsoft last year, totalling €497m (£344m) after the EU ruled the company wielded its Windows software monopoly to lock competitiors out of the market.
The EU ordered Microsoft to offer consumers an MP-less version, compatible with other software, to allow consumers to decide which media player they wanted to use."
