I hope Apple and Linux will be forced todo the same instead of singling out Microsoft and Windows, the EC regulators would be hypocrites if they didn't

True but Im betting if Microsoft or someone else made that claim then they couldn't ignore it for fear of double standards of regulation

I agree...except that is looking bleak at this moment. I question why Microsoft hasn't done so already...

The claim Opera made to the EU was about IE on Windows being a monopoly and that IE breaks anti-trust regulation, the exact same claim can be made about Safari on Apple and Konqueror/Firefox on Linux... I believe Microsoft haven't made that claim yet because they haven't been fined and the matter has yet been finalized... I bet once it has and that ballot is included with Windows then I bet Microsoft will make that claim against Safari/Konqueror
