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.

RE: Download on Windows install?

So let's assume I install Windows from a CD and don't have an internet connection set up already. Then I won't be able to download a different browser, because it would have to be downloaded from the internet.

Well, if you are not connected to the internet, having a browser doesn't really matter anyway does it? You can always just click the icon on the desktop that opens the Ballot up and do it when you are connected to the net.
