Internet Explorer Yesterday, Microsoft dropped a bomb by announcing that all versions of Windows 7 released in Europe would ship without Internet Explorer pre-installed. This was in answer to the EU antitrust investigation currently under way regarding possible illegal bundling of Internet Explorer with Windows. The first reactions to this news are coming in, with Opera and the EU both lamenting the move.

This is another example of MS deliberately threatening to release a crippled product that they know will tank in order to justify their actions.


This product cannot "tank" (I assume that means "fail") because it's the only way you're gonna get Windows 7 in Europe. There will be NO versions with IE.
