Sorry, but it does seem idiotic (well, unreasonable at least) to expect a company to supply an OS without a web browser.

Well you're just as wrong as is this article too. It's not about bundling Internet Explorer with Windows, it's about not offering a choice for it and the integration of the browser so that "it can't be uninstalled".

It's neither about distributing Trident binaries within the .NET platform or having the technology in Windows to parse RSS feeds in Vista's sidebar widgets.
