Windows A major UK retail store and three of the largest PC vendors worldwide still have no plans to sell the version of Microsoft Windows that does not contain its media player, five months after the version was released. Microsoft started offering Windows XP N, a version of Windows without a bundled media player, in June of this year to comply with last year's antitrust ruling by the European Commission.

LOL that's a terrible arguement though it sounds fine at first. That's like, why don't we all drive the same car or watch the same TV shows or whatever. Or even take computer games, why don't we all just play Wolf3D and be fine with that. Our modern society isn't content with just one standard, and that's not just with computers either. Take TV, there are a lot of standards, even before HTDV there was PAL and NTSC. This list is endless.
