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.

A browser ballot for Ubuntu.. it has default selections or you can uninstall and choose what browser you want instead. The default browser uninstalls completely rather than being required by the rest of the system to function. Safari also deletes from osX rather easily though I'll admit that every update after that will try to stuff it back in.

Oh well, Opera throws more fuel at the fire. I'm going to sit back and watch the show.

Seriously, is no one paying attention at all?

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"
