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.

Unfortunately I cannot support a company who relies on politicians for market share. So I'm going to have to remove their products from my desktop and cell phones....which is sad, because they were pretty good.

So are you going to uninstall Chrome and Firefox too, since both Google and Mozilla joined the complaint?

Also, if you pay attention, Lie answered a specific question, and did not demand anything. He merely suggested it MAY be a good idea:

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