This is ridiculous. It's not like they restrict the user from downloading an alternative browser to use. No IE = not able to download any other browsers. What do they want them to do? Install every browser? Then everyone will be complaining that there are too many.

Next thing you know they won't be able to bundle calculator with it because it's not fair to the competition. Or how about windows media player? not very fair to itunes and winamp to have it pre installed. Better not include it either.

1 billion dollar fine? rofl. MS should tell the EU to suck **** and pull their products off the shelves. We'll see how long Europe can do without MS products before crawling back on their knees.

Oh yeah I forgot about the N versions. But I seriously don't see what they expect microsoft to do....if they didn't include IE there would be no way for anyone to get on the internet to download different browsers....so....????

Hey question, does the EU make Apple release a version of OSX with no media player (ie itunes and quicktime)? I don't think they do....
