The EU is set to charge Microsoft (MSFT) for not fulfilling a 2009 ruling that it should provide consumers with a range of Web browsers. "It should not be a long investigation because the company itself explicitly recognized its breach of the agreement," says EU Competition Commissioner Joaquin Almunia. If found guilty, Microsoft could face penalties of up to 10% of its worldwide revenues.

    They didnt set the fine of "10% of revenue". They set the fine of $X (well euros) and then someone calculated that it was 10% revenue.
