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.

I see your point, but I will say this. I have removed IE from my windows installs. In the embeded version of XP you don't even have to install it (and i use that as one of my desktops). a lot of legacy apps that are hard coded to use IE and Trident (i should have thrown IE in there instead of just trident) don't work, or throw up all sorts of wierd errors.
