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.

Why don't I get a ballot screen for a text editor? MS is abusing its monopoly by including Notepad, what if I want to use Notepad++ or gvim?
And why does Explorer automatically run when I start up my machine? What if I want to use bb4win or lifestep instead? Those capitalist swines!
And for Solitaire?

I pity MS for having to deal with the EU's absurdities.
As if the EU has nothing more important to deal with.
