Internet Explorer Yesterday, Microsoft dropped a bomb by announcing that all versions of Windows 7 released in Europe would ship without Internet Explorer pre-installed. This was in answer to the EU antitrust investigation currently under way regarding possible illegal bundling of Internet Explorer with Windows. The first reactions to this news are coming in, with Opera and the EU both lamenting the move.

Whining about Opera

Thom, your whining about Opera is getting sillier by the minute.

Nobody to my knowledge has argued that Opera's small market share is only the result of IE being bundled with Windows.

However, in post after post on this side that you seem to use as your personal blog now, you act as if someone actually did. Which, conveniently, leaves you free to ignore the big elephant in the room: Namely, that having a near monopoly in the operating system market and bundling a browser with it undoubtedly gives you an unfair advantage over competitors.
