Windows The browser saga between Microsoft, the EU, and various browser makers just got a new chapter. We all know how the EU and Microsoft are in a legal tussle over the inclusion of Internet Explorer with Windows. Microsoft surprised everyone in June by announcing that Windows 7 would ship without Internet Explorer in Europe, a move it had hoped would silence the EU. The EU and Opera, however, were not impressed, and now Microsoft has caved in to the pressure.

That would be a terrible idea. Microsoft invests a lot of money and time in most of the user-visible components of Windows. Some OEMs are better than others, and in some cases users will get machines that have important components that simply don't work as well (or as securely) as the corresponding existing Windows component.
