Internet Explorer Details are scarce at the moment, but testers familiar with the recently leaked Windows 7 build 7048 confirm that Internet Explorer 8 is now an optional component in Windows 7. This is most likely a direct consequence of the EU investigation into the bundling of IE. Still, a few questions remain.

You know basically why the EU commission is doing this is to at least be able to show it's doing something in the field of cartel regulation, dealing with monopolies etc.
No matter how silly it looks, it's their way to not go after far bigger, more powerful and dirtier corporations than Microsoft (for those of us with one leg in the non-geek universe - they do exist! :-) ). Whether it's pharma, oil, arms manufacturing, chemicals corpotations dumping waste, carmakers that refuse to make their cars efficient, etc.
