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.

Thanks, I didn't flesh that out enough.

I don't agree with the EU and Opera going after Microsoft to begin with. Their monopoly argument over IE is what annoys me. As far as the current arguments presented in this article, I agree with what the EU is saying now, but it's obvious that Opera's current argument is just because they feel like nobody wants to play with them.

I also disagree with MS taking IE out of Windows 7 as a solution, because it takes away from the user experience.

Thanks for pointing out my inconsistency there, typed it while otherwise occupied and missed part of it ;)
