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.

I've seen nothing in EU law that would make that illegal, beyond the fact that antitrust law in the EU is the EC's whim.

The law is not the EC's whim. The EC ENFORCES the law. Please educate yourself.

where's the legal foundation to say that it's unacceptable for Windows to ship without a browser?

That is not the question here. The question is if removing IE would be sufficient to restore competitionin the market. It wouldn't.

This is beyond stupid.

Only to those who lack an even basic understanding of the issue.
