Hi, haven't posted here for a while but anyway, been a long term user of firefox, (ITS THE BEST!) I utterly always hated IE, and don't use it when I can, and rarely do use it, in windows 7, hopefully by removing IE, more will jump away from that rubbish browser and use something a lot safer, it doesn't surprise me that M$ has sunk this low, they know that window 7less IE will probably sell more then those with IE, the only slight problem, is that some stuff like steam, needs the rendering engine, so needs IE installed, of though the devs may start using other browser engines, not sure if this move will prompt them to do so, or still force people to download a rubbish browser that they don't want? time will tell, then again, sloppy PRing has always been M$ thing, as they claimed you can upgrade from windows 7 from XP, the real truth is, YOU CAN'T, only a clean install will work, and that's not an upgrade :!:

but anyway, M$ is getting desperate, that is for sure, but again, I wouldn't touch IE with a barge pole, and Im sure a lot of people won't either, and MS knows that, hence the bribes and false information :D
