The OEMs can even put IE on them. I’m sure MS will try to make IE the standard browser, or maybe even the only browser, since the OEMs can do it and I don’t see why MS can’t pay them (or reduce their Windows charge) to do so.
The issue comes with retail versions of the OS. If they can’t be sold with IE installed, perhaps MS can bundle a separate CD with the browser installer on it. Really, it’s just a pointless victory that seems to hurts the consumer more than it hurts MS. The EU already has a great deal of non-IE usage and I don’t see this move affecting anything. IE will probably continue to lose marketshare at the same rate it is now. As previously stated, making it confine to a minimum set of standards to be included would be better.
Agered. Funny right below your post is an MS ad for iIE8. Funny or scary .
