That's technically incorrect. You're purchasing a license to use Windows. It's a little-known fact.
Really? Isn't that well-known? Software is never yours, you just have permission to use it.

Put it this way - no court in the world would support you.
The courts would support him

The EULA you click may not be the one in effect

I'm sure that if Microsoft ever decided to place in the EULA terms dictating what software a user can and cannot install. That the EU would be more then happy to take them back to court over it.

Microsoft made a strategic business mistake with IE. IE was bundled with Windows starting way back and their ere few alternatives. Netscape (if I remember correctly) was IE's only competition and it left a lot to be desired. Because nearly everyone was using Windows and thus IE, MS made the decision to put IE development on the back burner and they gave it scant attention.

Mozella began developing Firefox and suddenly IE with all of its flaws was losing market share to Firefox, Opera and other alternatives. This caught MS by surprise and woke them up. They began to seriously work on IE. Thus we have IE 8 which really is a decent browser. Does it need improvement? Definitely. But so do Firefox and Chrome.

For the record, I am a Firefox user.

Simply put. I don't abide by any conditions other that the ones I was made aware of at the time of purchase. If you change the terms of the contract after the time of purchase they hold no validity unless financial terms are also renegotiated.

Have you ever seen the line, "We reserve the right to change this agreement at any time, without consumer consent"?

- Now if Chrome supported Active X controls like IE, then that would be a great accomplishment!

Unfortunately, IE is the most supported browser. FireFox has no plans to include Active X in their browser, I doubt Chrome does either.

There are just too many websites that require this functionality, if other browsers do not include this, it's going to be awhile before IE steps down from being the most-used browser.
