Internet & Networking Earlier this month, news got out that the European Commission is charging Microsoft with unlawful competition regarding its bundling of the Internet Explorer web bowser with Windows. At the time, information was scarce, but thanks to Microsoft's quarterly filing at the Securities and Exchange Commission. we now have a little more insight into what the EU might force Microsoft to do.

And what if I DO NOT WANT TO BE ABLE TO CHOOSE?


Simple. Move to North Korea... that'll take care of that one.

Or what if I do not want to make that decision? And what if I want my browser INCLUDED in my OS?


1) Don't make the decision. Let the default be chosen. If there is no default, it is your responsibility to choose. If you don't want such a responsibility, you really shouldn't stay alive. Freedom and responsibility is the foundation of western civilization. Besides that, your malfunctioning shouldn't limit the freedom of the rest of us.

2) With this solution a browser will still be included. You just get to decide which one will be default without the hassle of installing it manually. No big whoop.

The EU is getting so utterly BORING and stupid....... Much more than I thought it would.


True enough. But it's been like that for decades. At least it is again possible to measure the quality of non-straight cucumbers :p
