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.

Custom OS installation

The answer has been around at least since Windows 95. Custom/advanced install options for operating systems (openSuse has this) where almost everything can be selected and deselected (properly *never* installed) including the web browser (other options via net-install).
Then for beginners an unattended installation with default settings and also optionally customisable settings.

Come to think of it, why isn't everything a default unattended installation?
