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.

RE[3]: Shove Off Opera

Then they're going to have to make it, and the business model they have around it, relevant rather than trying to shoe-horn their product in front of users.

How are they "shoe-horning"? Opera is just one of the companies involved in the complaint. Google, Mozilla, etc. are involved as well.

You can't just protect Opera and others from that uncertainty by enforcing some browser 'ballot' application that helps users install their product. It's flat out laziness and cheek.

What on earth are you talking about? The ballot is meant to restore competition in the browser market. Mozilla and Google are behind this as well.

But all you people seem to do is whine about Opera. The ignorance is astounding.
