There lies the main problem.

Personally, I don't care if Microsoft bundles all the software they wish with Windows, as long I'm given the option to install it or not!

That has been the main problem all this time. Microsoft insisted that IE wasn't separable from the OS, and we all got to know it was a lie, and a deliberate one at that.

So, it's simple. Give us the choice to install or not.

Now, some companies can argue that their products won't be bundled with MS Windows because of MS contractual tatics. I think that's a completely different problem. And it might have a different solution.
