Google pushes for search options in Vista

Google Inc said Monday that it wants Microsoft Corp. to make sure users can easily choose Internet search engines in future products ” but Google refused to say if changes Microsoft has already made to its upcoming operating system, Vista, have gone far enough.

David C. Drummond, Google’s senior vice president of corporate development, spoke to reporters after meeting with European Union antitrust regulators but refused to give details on those talks, beyond saying there had been no particular agenda.

“It’s been our view that any new version of Microsoft products that include search, that that be done in a way that preserves user choice for search and other applications,” Drummond said. He said that Google would monitor the situation but that it was “too early to tell” if there were would be any antitrust allegations arising from Vista.
