Internet & Networking We've been talking about the browser ballot screen for a while now, which led to some obvious questions we couldn't answer. As it turns out (and I completely missed this), Microsoft actually posted a fairly detailed description of its proposal [.doc] on its website last Friday. It details everything from what it means not to have Internet Explorer installed to what the ballot screen will look like.

How about Windows Media Player?

WMA... WMV... other proprietary formats which are all over the Internet, and can only "legally" be played back on an OS Microsoft says you can (Windows, Windows, Windows, maybe Novell's Linux, and Mac...). And because Windows has a monopoly...a disgusting number of sites uses them.

The Apple side is really no better though, with QuickTime...

They might not be monopoly-level, but I think they've caused some damage when it comes to cross-platform media playback.
