Windows The browser saga between Microsoft, the EU, and various browser makers just got a new chapter. We all know how the EU and Microsoft are in a legal tussle over the inclusion of Internet Explorer with Windows. Microsoft surprised everyone in June by announcing that Windows 7 would ship without Internet Explorer in Europe, a move it had hoped would silence the EU. The EU and Opera, however, were not impressed, and now Microsoft has caved in to the pressure.

I think Windows Embedded is modular

It allows a hardware maker to add as little of the OS as required. The hardware usually is some dedicated device rather than a general purpose computer, but maybe an OEM could try to use Windows Embedded if they want to play around with what parts of the OS to include. It wouldn't make sense to do so, but I think it's possible.
