Is This Promoting Competition?

Posted by D. Daniel Sokol

I just read a news story on Microsoft from CNET that begins:

  • Reacting to antitrust concerns expressed by European regulators, Microsoft plans to offer a version in Europe that has the browser removed. Computer makers would then have the option to add the browser back in, ship another browser or ship multiple browsers, according to a confidential memo that was sent to PC makers and seen by CNET News.

Wow.  The article explains how the lack of a browser makes things really complicated for consumers.
