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.

But you keep missing that point, and mistaking my strong disagreement with your cavalier, overconfident, and complacent attitude, based upon my substantial first hand experience, with "arrogance".


So, your first-hand experience is somehow magically more qualified than mine? I never talk about my private life or my line of work, so you have no idea what I do, what my experience is, and so on.

Your experience could very well be true, but it's not even all that relevant to this story, most of all because you're American, and this story deals solely with Europe.

Thom, there is a whole world on the web that your experience obviously does not bring you into contact with. And it is one which Microsoft cares a lot more about than what you use to browse Twitter and Blogspot.


This is my last post in this discussion with you, because I'm pretty fed up with your condescending and arrogant attitude. I'm trying to have a fair discussion with you here, but you keep trying to make all sorts of statements about my experience and browsing habits that you have no knowledge of. This is very, very annoying and detracts from your arguments.
