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.

But perhaps that is at least partially exactly what customers actually want?

That is to say, at least I do not believe the mantra of certain FOSS people; that poor Windows users would hypothetically immediately switch to another products if they are just "educated" about the choices.

Sometimes I just find the "sheep herd consumers" -thinking condescending, especially when coming from a bureaucracy such as EU.
