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 think it is just wishful thinking on Opera to think this will make a significant difference to the usage of their browser.

Actually, Mozilla and Google are part of the complaint as well. Are they just engaging in wishful thinking as well?

Remember, Opera's market share in Europe is higher than Safari and Chrome combined!

Also, Opera will benefit from this because more people will realize that there are alternatives, and even if just a few of them get curious and select Opera, it is still to Opera's benefit.
