Original post edited. Next time I will only poke fun at the Germans. It's cool to hate us anyways.

That may be so, but can you not see that maybe alot of people would be pretty offended by what you said?...It's a pretty sweeping statement...

Ok, getting us back on topic...

I think that as long as Microsoft does not do anything to make it hard for people to install third-party applications that replace functionality provided by Microsoft apps (such as replacing IE with Firefox, or WMP with Winamp), then they should be left alone. I mean, they are doing a great service to their customers by providing a lot of applications free with the operating system. Most computer users don’t know enough to go out and buy firewall, anti-virus and anti-spyware apps, so if Microsoft includes them, so much the better!

Also, it just makes life easier for people. This way, when they bring home a new computer, it can do most of what they want with out having to go buy $500 worth of extra software.

I’m sure my dad could give a better explanation of this then I could, as he is an economist who has done anti-trust work for the US Department of Justice.

Ok, I just talked to my dad, and his explanation as to why the Europeans are all pissed off at Microsoft is because under European copyright law, the dominant firm in an industry is required to make allowances for smaller companies. For example, Coca-Cola was forced to allow Pepsi and other brands to stock goods in Coca-Cola vending machines.

What the Europeans want is for Microsoft to remove programs such as Windows Media Player from Windows and force customers to pay extra for it, so that competing applications such as RealPlayer will have an equal shot.

Hah! Yeah right, even if they did that WMP is free. Same with Windows Defender and Internet Explorer. Make a EU version without all the extras and they'll just d/l from the microsoft site.

This whole craziness about them making a browser and anti-spyware part of their OS is just silly!

How could you have installed Firefox without having a browser to begin with? Want to use Netscape? That's great point your IE browser to it and get it. Incorporating IE into the system makes it easier to install other browsers. I don't see a problem there. I guess you could order the browser on CD for $10 wait 2 to 4 weeks for it.

Windows anti-spyware? Lets face it unless you "deep in it" like us you don't know what to use. I've had a few customers install anti-spyware that was ACTUALLY SPYWARE!! AOL promises you anti-spyware but their stuff is 10x worse than actual spyware sometimes (if you dont want it) to remove. They again have provided you with a great service. They aren't stopping you from using Spybot S&D or Adaware!!
