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.

The vast majority of people on IE6 are people who either don't have admin on their machine, or people who work in places where it is the only allowed browser.

If you included the other versions of the browser, I would not be surprised if the numbers are somewhat similar, especially considering how IE usage tends to plummet on weekends.

If that is the case, this will have zero positive impact.
