Legal "The European Commission has imposed a EUR 561 million fine on Microsoft for failing to comply with its commitments to offer users a browser choice screen enabling them to easily choose their preferred web browser. In 2009, the Commission had made these commitments legally binding on Microsoft until 2014. In today's decision, the Commission finds that Microsoft failed to roll out the browser choice screen with its Windows 7 Service Pack 1 from May 2011 until July 2012. 15 million Windows users in the EU therefore did not see the choice screen during this period. Microsoft has acknowledged that the choice screen was not displayed during that time." Burn.

What YOU fail to understand is that both Windows AND Internet Explorer are Microsoft's products, thus being sovereign in its own kingdom, their are free to bundle the products and services they want.

Like I said, Microsoft is free do do whatever THEY want with THEIR products, but shouldn't mess with other products and/or standard (OEM/BIOS/UEFI).
