I think the EU may have a tough time making a case. If they define the market narrowly as open source database systems, they have to deal with the low barrier to entry inherent in open source. If they define the market broadly as PC database software, then Microsoft becomes the elephant in the room. A still broader definition, such as database software generally, makes a myriad of other competitors significant.

JMHO, of course.
