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.

It is just stupid that a software company cannot include their own browser with their operating system by default. And why SHOULD they bundle other browsers? That's why companies like opera software started, to offer alternatives.

I'd be pissed if I installed my OS to find that there was no browser and I had to specifically say "I want to install a browser".
