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.

The difference here is that if you don't like Windows, you don't have a different distributor or different version of Windows without a particular browser.
If you dont like IE bundlded with windows, you have choice to install FF, Opera, chrome(which are free).
I always use FF but dont cry about having IE residing on my system.
One more gripe, when installing FF or opera, I dont get ballot box to install default search engine. FF installs google as default search engine at top right hand box.
