itwbennett writes “Hurrah! The European Commission’s antitrust investigation of the Microsoft’s position in the browser market is over. The EC has accepted Microsoft’s commitment to offer users of ‘Windows XP, Windows Vista and Windows 7 a choice screen through which they can pick the browsers they want to install on their PC,’ writes Peter Sayer in an article on ITworld. ‘The screen will be offered to users in the European Union and some neighboring countries for the next five years via the Windows Update mechanism. In addition, PC manufacturers will be allowed to ship computers with competing Web browsers, as well as or instead of Internet Explorer.’”
