Windows Windows 7 has been out and about for little over a week now, and as it turns out, Microsoft's new baby is doing relatively well. That is, according to the figures by NetApplications: Windows 7 already reached the 3% mark this weekend, and is already closing in on the 4% mark.

"Has it ever occurred to you that Microsoft might be restricted in what it can include in the operating system by ... oh, I dunno ... ANTITRUST considerations?"

Nothing's preventing them from including software not developed by them, such as OpenOffice.org.

FALSE. The consent decree forbids MS from bundling, period, because it's designed to prevent MS from choosing winners and losers.

I still think that that decree is just plain stupid. Other OSes bundle browsers, mail clients etc and so should Microsoft be allowed to do that also. Besides, the whole idea of getting browser ballots (and whatnot in the future, I can almost bet mail client is next) after you've gotten your new PC unpacked is just irritating.
