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.

Ubuntu donot give me choice to "install" browser. All browsers you mentioned are "bundled" with what ubuntu offers. "bundling" of browser is what EU don't like. Now if ubuntu/kubuntu offers me to "install" and not "uninstall" choice I will be happy.
Dont give me line that linux is only kernel, you have choices etc etc. For end user Ubuntu, Mint or any other distribution itself is "entire OS"
BTW try apt-get remove konqueror and see what happend (on kubuntu). Your KDE will be half-dead...Wasn't it the case that you cannot remove IE completely from MS windows??
