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.

Uhm, that's exactly the point the EU and opera are making.

They want a browser out of the box, they just don't want it to be IE by default. That's why they want give users a choice upon install, something MS obviously doesn't want to happen.

So you are basically agreeing with the EU and opera and slamming them at the same time for something MS chose to do.
