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.

Also, I never ever ever, want there to be a choice of browsers shoved down the throats of users of new hardware - that's just a terrible idea.


You mean like Firefox is shoved down to the throats of Ubuntu users or Lynx to the throats of OpenBSD users?

Generally I think the assumed or real monopoly position in the past, present or future is an endless coffin for similar accusations. What next?

As a consumer I want Emacs to be an option for notepad, HFS an option for NTFS, and a lot of other things...
