One of the most amusing things during Windows 7 development was the Internet Explorer story, when MS offered Windows 7 with removable IE, i was very happy and i was thinking sure this will make EU happy as well. It turns out that the EU wanted much more, and even removing IE completely from Windows 7 EU version was not enough for them, they wanted to offer Windows 7 users with all browsers and let the user select!, something i never heard before in the business world (force a company to offer it's competitor products!) MS caved to EU and will offer a browser ballot not only to 7 users but also to XP and Vista users as well within the EU. MS will offer a web page with a browser ballot (www.browserballot.eu) that will allow users to select a browser out of 10 browsers. ( I wonder what will be the remaining 5 browsers ... Maxthon, Flock, Konqueror, K-Meleon and Avant Browser ) The big question is: is this ballot will help the end user and give him more browsers freedom.... in my opinion ..... NO, will unless users are living in a cave, they are aware of other browsers, and can perfectly go download and install them. if not .... these are technology challenged users and this ballot will not help them at all since the users will simply use what they know best .... IE.
