Windows It's October 22 today. A completely random date in the grand scheme of things (we Dutch lost a big naval battle to the Ming dynasty on October 22 1633), but it also happens to be the release date of the newest version of Windows - Windows 7. Since Windows is still the most popular desktop operating system out there, this is pretty big news.

I believe the idea was that OEMs could choose whether or not to have the ballot screen and what browsers to put in it (e.g. you buy a new computer from Dell and it asks you whether you want IE, Firefox, or Opera).

I can't imagine that the EU would be able to force Microsoft to include other companies' products in its operating system.
