[bbc] The European Commission has launched two competition inquiries to study whether IBM has abused its dominant position in mainframe computers.
One probe follows complaints by two software makers, T3 and Turbo Hercules.
The study will examine whether IBM has put obstacles in place that prevent competitors from operating freely. IBM says the claims have no merit.
The other inquiry, launched by the Commission itself, will look at IBM's relations with maintenance suppliers
