The Mozilla Foundation has begun an investigation after tech juggernaut Dell appeared to be asking customers to pay GBP 16.25 ($27) to install its free web browser Firefox on newly purchased Dell kit.

What.

All Dell is going to say is that they arent selling the software but rather charging a service fee for the installation which I think is a load of crap, excuse me for my lack of a better term, all this stuff is automated and all it is is a checkmark on the mass installer. This kind of tactic reminds me of MS-DOS and C/PM, where IBM sold MS-DOS for 40 bucks and CP/M for 240 bucks, and said they were letting the market decide.
