Mozilla & Gecko clones Remember the very detailed proposal Microsoft submitted to the European Commission not too long ago about the browser ballot? This was quite the detailed proposal, covering just about every possible aspect of such a ballot screen. Responses were positive from within the EC, but now it seems that according to the Mozilla Foundation, the proposal is not good enough.

They should just remove Internet accessibility all together from Windows 7. People need to spend more time outside.

Remove the browser by default, and let system builders install whatever browser they choose...
Make it more like Linux, where you get the bare minimum, and then third parties fill in everything else...
Also, provide a package manager where applications can be searched and chosen (for various tasks, not just the browser) and then automatically downloaded/installed...
Linux makes for a much better system than windows, more choice and easier to make the choices.
System builders can act like linux distros, and make a default set of choices while still allowing the user to easily remove the defaults and replace them.

... instead of reading about the ever-worsening U.S. obesity epidemic on the Internet, and wondering what can be done.

Strip the internet to bring operating systems back to their core activities, and let the connectivity happen through smartphones and cloud-like operating systems. :-)
