Microsoft has warned that the release of its Windows Vista operating system could be delayed as the result of the European Commission’s anti-trust action against the firm. Microsoft made the comment in a filing delivered to the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) last month.

Supporting Microsoft are four European Member of Parliaments (MEPs) who wrote to EU Competition Commissioner Neelie Kroes this month warning that the regulatory action is endangering the competitiveness of European firms.

The Commission provided Microsoft with a list of concerns earlier this year, which the software firm responded to and to which it is currently awaiting a response. The concerns regarded certain functions in Vista and the compatibility of the technology with products from other software vendors.
