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.

"Excuse me, but did you actually read what the guy said?

Excuse me, but it is not the policy of most Linux distros to include closed source software except in the case in which it is absolutely required to make the hardware run. And even in that extreme case some distros choose to exclude it.

You didn't actually READ what he said. He didn't say that OPERA should be on the ballot. He said that it MAY be a good idea to offer it.

Why say it at all then? Hair splitting over what he said is just plain daft.
