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, Kubuntu, Xubuntu - they all have different defaults that actually add value to the intended target use. They all also allow one to uninstall firefox and install many other browsers from the repositories.

For me, it'll always be a full install disk that trumps a liveCD stamp due to my own install and selection methods but I can't fault Canonical's liveCD distros for not providing real choice to the end user.
