Following the EU’s anti trust case against the software giant Microsoft, the firm has announced that when the latest operating system, Windows 7, is released in October, it will not include the firm’s Internet Explorer.
What it will be doing is providing a version of Windows 7 that has no IE to the computer manufacturers.
This means that the computer maker will be able to choose between installing the IE browser, Firefox or another browser of their choosing.
However if the computer maker chooses not the install the operating system or browser this would leave the buyer with a browser-less computer and therefore with no way of downloading one.
In this event Microsoft has said that it will be providing CDs with the relevant software on.
