Browser wars again
I never got an option to setup an alternative browser ...
When you install Windows 7 you get a list of browsers and you just click on the one you want.
So now there is no way anyone can complain that Microsoft is using its monopoly to force Europeans to use Internet Exploder, is there?
But nooo, apparently someone can. This week a big cheese from the Mozorella Foundation claimed that the way Microsoft has proposed to get users to chose their browser was all wrong.
Mitchell Baker said that a "ballot screen" giving Windows 7 punters the option of setting up Firefox, or another browser instead, was not enough to level the playing field.
Anyhow I do not see why MS should give the option?????? I think they are being far to nice to even let the idea go through and then some idiot goes and complains that it isnt good enuf ...
The world is a dangerous place to live; not because of the people who are evil, but because of the people who don't do anything about it.
