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.

This has nothing to do with standards or any other righteous cause.

The EU have decided that if Microsoft didn't manipulate the market, then Opera would have 30% of the market.

So they have decided to give opera a big chance of getting 30% of the market with a big banner ad right inside windows.
