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 is not quite true.. If you remove IE, than you cannot install recommended updates easily from Microsoft , due to the problem with compatibility (ActiveX I think). The sec fix will update automatically (if is set)..
So IMHO the Microsoft did not completed the dependency on IE in Vista at least (I don't know the 7) or actually they left a needed usage for IE...
