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.

You complain at the dinner table because you always get the chair with the broken arm. Momma decides we all eat on the floor and you are still unhappy. Why? Because you want a choice of what chair to choose before dinner.

Opera is a wuss, stand up, compete and make a great product that ppl would like to use. Even if you cant compete with IE or FF directly, there is still a browser market and you are still ahead of other browsers that have been created.

Bottomline is Opera doesnt deliver and ppl will choose what they want regardless of how you bundle it. It's a game of Chess and MS has Opera and the EU in check right now.
