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.

Let me start off by saying that I have allocated only a limited amount of time to address your foolishness, and so will jump to the heart of the matter and be concise. EU (and US, for that matter) antitrust policies have nothing at all against bundling, per se. What they do forbid is using one monopoly, in this case a monopoly in the desktop OS space, to leverage another product, in this case the IE web browser. Your constant moaning about bundling in general is misguided at best. And totally insincere, at worst. (Can an OSNews reader really be so misinformed?)

As I'm keeping this brief, if you would like more detail, see one of my previous posts on a related topic:
