Microsoft has said it will give rival software companies access to parts of the source code for its Windows operating system.

The concession was made in response to a 2004 European Union (EU) anti-trust ruling which ordered the company to share its code with competitors.

It came three weeks ahead of the EU's compliance deadline, which threatened fines of 2m euros (£1.4m; $2.4m) a day.
