Windows 7 – Without IE - Europe

Microsoft plans to remove Internet Explorer from the versions of Windows 7 that it ships in Europe, CNET News has learned.

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.


Of course, users could always download IE if they wanted it – for free (I just can’t figure out why anyone would want to use IE, but then again – that’s just me).
