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.

Choose System -> Preferences -> Preferred Applications. A neat GUI chooser for web browser, email, multimedia, etc.

Good point. Yes it does. And it's "optional". Which it should be, being a component of a *free* OS, people.
I'm just fine with the idea of a "forced" ballot screen in a commercial product (not too many though), but I really hope thats where it stays.
