It's refreshing to see that Microsoft has had to bow down to the EU and remove the auto install of IE. I suppose this is a rare moment where large companies have to remove a monopolising attribute to their business. In the case that led to Microsoft and the EU battling it out in the courts, it has left the unsuspecting user a slight dilemma: What browser do I use? And, how do I go about getting it?
Will Microsoft set up a direct link via ftp to Mozilla, Chrome or Opera as well?(there are others but lion's share goes to these three) I shouldn't think they will. But you never know.
Incidentally, how will the user, once they've installed the OS, browse the internet to access the site to download your chosen browser? Can this be done via the OS explorer?
