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 don't think getting on the list can or should be automatic.

At the very least I woul expect it to pass a test of what 'counts' as a browser.

Lynx is a browser but I highly doubt the majority of users would think of this as a suitable webbrowser! (it is very goog though and certainly worth a look)

I do maintain the opinion that people will not activly search out a new browser if they are already presented with a list of 10(?) they will simply swap among them until one 'will do'.

If you are not on 'the list', sadly, you dont exist..
