Windows The browser saga between Microsoft, the EU, and various browser makers just got a new chapter. We all know how the EU and Microsoft are in a legal tussle over the inclusion of Internet Explorer with Windows. Microsoft surprised everyone in June by announcing that Windows 7 would ship without Internet Explorer in Europe, a move it had hoped would silence the EU. The EU and Opera, however, were not impressed, and now Microsoft has caved in to the pressure.

To me this seems like a great improvement compared to how Microsoft has been doing default installs in the past, and I'm surprised more people aren't happy about this.

Sure you can criticise this solution, but I think it's much better than Microsoft slapping a blue e on the desktop and calling it The Internet. Giving users more choice is always a good thing, especially in the browser field where some people might not even know they have a choice.
