WorknMan,

That's not the whole story. If I recall microsoft went so far as to use their windows monopoly to prohibit OEMs from installing alternative browser software, which is where they crossed the line in that case. I suspect MS could have legally bundled IE if they hadn't banned OEMs from installing competing software at the same time. Consider the resolution in europe did not ban IE bundling but instead declared that other browsers would be bundled alongside IE.
