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.

Thom has an idea that forcing MS to make IE more standards compliant is the answer. Not a bad thought. But I put that in the same category as "forcing world peace". How do you do it? What does it mean? How do you measure it? How do you keep them from breaking the web in a way that your tests don't register? I just don't see how that could successfully be executed.


True. I haven't thought about that very deeply - it's more of a general desire than an implementable plan or something.
