Von Tetzchner also talks about the company's antitrust complaint to the European Commission in which it accuses Microsoft of abusing its dominant position by tying Internet Explorer to Windows.

Every OS ships a browser with it now. Various Linux distributions choose Firefox, apple chose their own safari, and Microsoft chose their own internet explorer. It seems to me that opera is just whining because they didn't get chosen by anyone. They are like a kid complaining because he wasn't chosen for a team in gym class.
