Windows 7 to be shipped in Europe without Internet Explorer

Ok, I can understand the antitrust action based on the way Microsoft back in the 90’s, but on 2009 this is starting to look ridiculous. Take the market share (by Net Application):


Isn’t this a little bit out of date? Since Microsoft is no longer tying Internet Explorer to Windows (nor shipping), shouldn’t the same shipping prohibition be extended to Safari and Firefox on Mac OS X and Ubuntu? Or better yet, shouldn’t we stop this anachronism?

Oh well, probably the OEMs will just pack IE on the distributions we get here in Europe so I’m just wasting our time on what won’t probably be a problem…
