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.

Once you get ballot screens for everything you might as well be running Gentoo. Ballot screen for your logger, your JRE, your cron, your default editor, your mail client, your PDF viewer, your dvd burner.

This is ridiculous.
If you want a different browser install it or use a different distro.
Should Kubuntu show a ballot screen for a DVD burner so you can choose Xfburn over K3B?... NO!, you already chose K3B when you chose Kubuntu. But nothing is stopping you from installing it after the fact.
