Opera Software Last week, the European Commission announced that Microsoft is willing to implement a browser ballot screen in Windows so that users can select a browser to install when installing Windows or when setting up their OEM computer. While this makes Opera very happy, Opera would like to see Ubuntu and Apple offer such a ballot screen too.

This claim is probably the most stupid I have ever heard.

I use Opera since version six if not forced to use FF or IE (at work I have to use them from on a day by day basis). I still like oper better. It has features I didn't find in any of the others.

But asking for a ballot screen or asking for any other kind of free advertising is dumb. Can't Opera hire a marketing manager, for crying out loud?

Did you even read beyond the insane and sensationalist BS by the article author?

The quote: "Apple and Ubuntu are not monopolies as per the legal definition of a monopoly. Still, it may be a good idea to offer it"

What claim? He said that it MAY be a good idea.

"Should" can indicate a suggestion. It is a PERFECTLY FINE auxiliary verb to use here.

"Maybe I should fly a kite today."

"Yeah, you should do that."
