Internet & Networking Earlier this month, news got out that the European Commission is charging Microsoft with unlawful competition regarding its bundling of the Internet Explorer web bowser with Windows. At the time, information was scarce, but thanks to Microsoft's quarterly filing at the Securities and Exchange Commission. we now have a little more insight into what the EU might force Microsoft to do.

Well, my debian base install doesn't come with a browser ;) I choose it as everything else later on. I like it that way. 99% of pc users wouldn't. For one, most of them don't know they can choose something else, and if they hear about having to choose they get scared. That is the level most people have when they say they know how to handle a pc. You can't change that with regulations, unfortunately. I'd say letting them get IE with their purchase and then later telling them about possible replacements is a better way.
