I say "Sorry but Microsoft wasn't able to include a browser in this version of Windows...EU regulation prevented it...". Now doesn't that sound pretty damn ridiculous? Really EU a separate download or "feature disks".

For what it's worth i'm EU and like many would quite prefer to have IE8 bundled in. I use IE and i am happy with it, but if i wasn't i would still prefer for it to be bundled and then remove or install an alternative at my leisure.

I guess this is targetted to the people who perhaps would not know better and therefore would stay with the bundled app. However in reality it is exactly those people who will be stiched up like this as the more technical users will easily find a way to install, whether it be through an update or just having the installer on a USB stick.

Don't tar us all with the same brush! This is a stupid ruling. Is it going to cause major hassle... well no. In fact from reading what i have read on here it looks like we Europeans will benefit, as with pre-release copies we will be getting full versions rather than simply upgrades for the same cost as the upgrade. That suits me just fine ty

This IE issue has been going on for years and while i have never taken any notice of it i always thought it was down to other companies crying fowl and putting pressure on the EU and/or MS rather than just the EU being silly.
Could be wrong i guess but it always struck me as silly.
This is why i dont think that adding in IE later is dumb. MS are pleasing the EU by not selling W7 with IE built in yet straight away are providing it free.
And yes, im very happy to pay the pre order price.

Yes...this sounds pretty stupid, but maybe there is a way to install IE just by running Windows Update. Maybe IE8 will appear as an optional update.
FFS, how would a new computer user, with no special knowledge, who only wants to browse the web will react when he sees that he can't . He has to spend time and maybe money to get someone to install on his brand new PC or Notebook an Internet Browser...

Buying a PC is a different matter. Im sure companies like Dell etc will put a browser on their PC's, its just people buying the OS that will have to find a way of getting on line. And if you can install a OS im sure you can figure how to put a web browser on.

Soooo......

1) Windows E (sans IE) install begins
2) Windows E runs Windows Update
3) Windows E asks user if they want to install KBxxxxxxxx
4) Average user says "Yes"
5) Windows E installs update KBxxxxxxxx
6) Windows completes remainder of installation
7) Windows is now installed with IE

This is the solution that cost tens (hundreds?) of millions of USDs and EUs

I won't argue the pros and cons, only that I wish the money had been donated to some worthier cause.

P.S. The Lawyers wish to thank everyone for their children's college fund.

Hey Swarfega, if you like IE, you can move into the house across the street from me. That way once you buy 7, you get IE!
