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.

of course the eu isn't happy: a compliant microsoft means no more insane fines and revenue for brussels' bureaucrats.

expect the antitrust commissar to up the ante with ever more frivolous demands.

it depresses me to think these people have the last word in dictating the product of a private company in the name of competition, then go on subsidizing and bailing out national champion industries and agriculture.

to quote the onion: it never ends this sh*t
