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.

I like the Opera browsers, but they need to learn to market their browser. Firefox climbed the ranks without resorting to forcing Microsoft to include it as an option. Opera can do the same.

I don't think the option panel should be included in any OS. I say this because crap like this has a tendency to become viral. Before long when you install an OS or even a program you are going to be flooded with these stupid panels asking you what you want.

I'm all for a smack down on Microsoft, but not this way.
