Opera Software Last week, the European Commission announced that Microsoft is willing to implement a browser ballot screen in Windows so that users can select a browser to install when installing Windows or when setting up their OEM computer. While this makes Opera very happy, Opera would like to see Ubuntu and Apple offer such a ballot screen too.

Why stop at browsers? Let's make every kind of application available in a kind of "store" - we could call it the "App Store".
Oh, wait...

Why stop there?

Today, I can unveil... BallotOS!

With BallotOs, the power is at the user's fingertips. When you set up BallotOS, you will get a ballot screen for every component of the operating system - from boot screen to the My Computer icon on your desktop. You'll get to choose your taskbar, audio framework, wallpaper, display driver, notepad application, network stack, and so on.

BallotOS is EC-proof and Opera-proof.
