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.

It bothers me that a company like Opera thinks that it can just avoid any change

Uh, what makes you think Opera wants to avoid change? Opera has been at the FOREFRONT of change. For example, Opera did mobile browsers before anyone else even considered it!

The market for web browsers can't just avoid change because of a mandate to suit Opera.

Opera isn't trying to avoid change. Opera is trying to BRING ABOUT change.

Web browsers have been freely available for some time now and freely available software is always going to have a better chance of being distributed into the hands of many people

Uh, OPERA IS A FREE DOWNLOAD! Did you seriously not know that?
