Windows 7 to be shipped in Europe without Internet Explorer
It has been reported
that Windows 7 will be sold without Internet Explorer in the European Union.
This is ridiculous.
The EU closely monitors Microsoft, and rightly so. But this is not a good evolution.
If anything has been proven the last couple of years, it is that even when Microsoft supplies an internet browser with Windows, there is still competition possible. The Firefox rise is a testament to this.
Every OS that comes to the market now has an internet browser. It is like a file explorer, command shell, calculator, text editor, etc... Microsoft should be allowed to innovate in this space, and provide a browser with their OS.
