warning   Warning
If you do not download an Internet Browser & save to another source before installing Windows 7E you will NOT have access to the internet

I would buy the E edition but I think it's not available in my region I wish all versions of Windows 7 didn't include IE... that is my dream that one day we will have windows with out a built in IE.. this idea started with windows 95, and caused netscape to loose it's dominance as the top browser back in the day, and eventually made the idea of a Paid browser a thing of the past. I only use IE for windows update, or when a site doesn't work with firefox, but lately it's very rare that a site doesn't work with firefox, there is still a few though , like Arab bank the largest bank in the middle east won't work with firefox or IE 8, My friend has upgraded to IE 8, so I suggested he uninstall it , and when he did IE7 worked fine, offcourse I learned later of the IE7 compatibility feature built into IE8 which could work but I didn't try that so not sure. also maximo doesn't seem to be friendly with firefox, maximo is one of the largest helpdesk and maintenance software, and you can only access the application from an IE browser, if you use firefox the buttons will not work correctly.

even if they won't officialy ship it to UK, there is many ways to get it. you can send it to the address of a friend of yours who lives in the US, and he can then just send it to you.

I buy stuff from the states all the time, stuff that's not supposed to be shipped out of the states. to do that I use the Shop & Ship service from aramex , which is mailbox service allows you to enjoy all the benefits of shopping online from US or UK websites as if you are actually living there. basically they give you a US or a UK address if you make a $42 deposite with them, and when ordering stuff online like from amazon I use the US address, and they automatically deliver the goods to me, aramix is a company like FedEx but it's headoffice is in the middle east. if I go to their local shop they even have shoping catalogs where you can order all kinds of things from the US.

Actually it is likely that MS will bundle an IE cd with Windows 7E. Several windows 7 news sites reported this rumor.

I voted an emphatic NO. I will not be purchasing Windows 7 E, for several reasons:
  1. First and foremost is because Windows is a Microsoft product, and Microsoft therefore has the right to decide what they will or will not include in their own products. Nobody has the right to dictate what can and cannot be done to something that does not belong to them.
  2. If Microsoft must remove IE from Windows, then Apple must remove Safari from OSX, and all the various flavors of Linux must also not include a browser.
  3. If the browser competition really does not like the majority share of IE, then they need to get their acts together and improve their products in order to begin providing browsers that actually do work better than IE. IE is the better choice not because of bully or monopoly tactics - it's the better choice because it's the better product.
  4. Windows 7 E will probably not be available in South Africa...
