Windows "Computers in the European Union should be sold without a bundled operating system, according to this submission to the European Commission. It says that the bundling of Microsoft Windows with computers is not in the public interest, and prevents meaningful competition in the operating system market." This is the conclusion of the Globalisation Instute, a think tank located in Brussels. Please note this is not a(n) (official) statement from the European Commission.

In my point of view it's a disaster that this issue hasn't been resolved a looooong time ago.

On the other hand 95% will install windows anyway, but that fact hardly changes that it is bad for competition...
