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.

Sorry for my rant..
I would like to see similar ballot box when I install your favourite ubuntu or pclos or mepis etc.
i would like to see you guys demand ballot box for tires, windshield, colors etc when you buy a new car at GM or toyota
I would like to see you guys demanding ballot box for onions, lettuce, tomatos, bread when buying chicken sandwitch at Mcdonalds..
I would like to see you guys demanding ballot box forr shirt buttons or pant zippers when you buy cloths. Of course linux gurus like choices, so why not choice for zippers....
GPL has its own nice world of freedom and choices. It should not interfere(and vice versa) in the cruel and notorious world of for-profit businesses....Both should stay their courses to make world happy
