Internet & Networking We've been talking about the browser ballot screen for a while now, which led to some obvious questions we couldn't answer. As it turns out (and I completely missed this), Microsoft actually posted a fairly detailed description of its proposal [.doc] on its website last Friday. It details everything from what it means not to have Internet Explorer installed to what the ballot screen will look like.

Opera will probably complain even if they are the first choice.

No. Håkon Wium Lie will suggest that it might be a good idea for the EU to force MS to present Opera's entry in a slightly more eye-catching font than anyone else, in addition to being first, and then go on to suggest that Debian and gNewSense might should make an exception to their most basic philosophical policies and do the same thing. And then OSNews reader "hangman" will bang out 47 more posts asserting that he was the only person who really read the article, doggedly ignoring all evidence to the contrary.

I am thinking their next proposal will be that the icons will have to be sized in reverse proportion to their current market share, and when the mouse is passed over the Opera O, it must become bathed in holy light.

Nah, Opera will want a selection dialog with 10 different icons, all pointing to the Opera download ;)
