Haha ... and then how would the average noob download itunes the first time they turn their new pink dell laptop on? :P

Or slightly more seriously ... some people would be so confused by that. Really making it so *YOU* can remove IE would be better than it not shipping with Windows.

Ummm - they could have the option to install it via Windows Update easily enough....

Yes they could but people would not understand and/or like a computer that turned on with no browser at first. They don't want to do updates ever, let alone first. And even that would require they open Windows Update, download IE, restart (as you know it would require it) download a different browser, remove IE, restart (you know it would make you AGAIN) lol what a mess.

It would be a great marketing ploy and would get them used to running it at least once to get IE.

I think it would be a great marketing ploy, plus those of us purists that wish woe could remove it would have our field day with an IE-less (and thus ActiveX vulnerable-less) install of Windows....

C'mon, man, let me at least dream the dream for a *little* while before you burst my bubble....

One problem with that, you need to use it at least once so you can download your preferred browser and I don't think they will put Firefox on windows update any time soon LOL

But I think HP and Dell would love to put the Firefox installer on your desktop :P

And of course you could always use a USB flash drive Lots of them even come with the Firefox installer on it already.

I got my reply in before you replied, so you missed my reasoning - Windows Update in Vista and again in W7 runs independently of IE (although I am *betting* on the fact that it uses a lot of IE components, thereby killing my own argument for doing this) so it could be used to get IE....

I consider it good - cause it is thinking outside the box that will get you places and usually faster.
