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.

"I would like to see similar ballot box when I install your favourite ubuntu or pclos or mepis etc."

many linux installers give you said options already.

"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"

have you ever been to an automotive companies website? most allow for customization.

"I would like to see you guys demanding ballot box for onions, lettuce, tomatos, bread when buying chicken sandwitch at Mcdonalds."

go to a sit down and order off a menu resturant, then you can make such requests, i know, i've done it ;) . Hell even fast food joints typically understand a request for "No _________" (where ______ = what you don't want).

"I would like to see you guys demanding ballot box forr shirt buttons or pant zippers when you buy cloths."

you mean cutome tailerd clothing? my god, if only there were such a thing. oh wait, there is, its the thing i just said.

thanks for playing...
