IIRC, the ballot screen if going to be done through Windows Update anyways, and isn't even finalized yet. ^_^

Hi all
A "Promo" / Non retail / special copy is exempt from all the EU Bovine Scatology (Grade A B/S) as its not a normal "distribution" mechanism.

IE8 will be automatically installed.

In any case if I were MS I would go and tell the EU to "make a sexual move with a duck" and threaten to move 50,000 jobs outside the EU altogether. That should wake them up a bit.

In Iceland we'll welcome Microsoft with Open Arms --please come -- you'll certainly get a tax holiday as well.

The EU was meant to be an Economic union with free movement of Labour and Capital (including goods and services) -- not a "super state" with former and current disgraced Politicians being paid millions from ordinary hard working people's taxes to produce the totally imbecillic rulings agains the FEW successful companies who can actually get us out of Recession.

Sorry about the Politics but these people drive me MAD.

Cheers

I have the RTM version and IE8 was already installed when I first loaded Windows 7 up.

You probably got it from "Technet" or MSDN - this still isn't an "Official Retail source".

We'll have to see what happens when the actual retail packs appear.

I think also there were some issues about the feasbility of actually implementing the EU ruling for the initial distribution of W7.

It could come in later but somehow I think the whole nonsense will be quietly dropped or only introduced in home / individually purchased versions such as Home Basic / Home Premium.

Professional / Ultimate / Enterprise editions can be regarded as "Business Software" and are likely to be exempt from this type of ruling - especially for companies operating in several countries --

These type of organisations certainly won't want to maintain different Windows versions.

Cheers

hmm wonder what the EU will have to say about that!

IE8 for win 7 64bit

I cannot find IE8 for win 7 64bit. I don't see the option as a choice in the menu. I'm having lots of issues with IE9 and want to go back to IE8.

Use Chrome or FireFox instead. Don't think you can go back to IE8.

You can revert back from IE9 to IE8 with Windows 7
Go to Control Panel >Programs> view installed updates & scroll down to the Microsoft Windows section select the IE9 update & uninstall.
You have to restart your PC & then IE8 will be back

That's it!

I couldn't uninstall IE9 from the "uninstall programs" area, but I knew it would revert to IE8 if I could uninstall. I'm new to IE9 so I didn't know where to go to remove it. Thanks so much. IE8 works with virtually every website that I need to access. Thanks again :)
