Anyone in this thread heard of Real Player? Anyone here ever used Netscape 4? Anyone here know that Opera used to be ad-ware? Anyone here used Windows 95?
Yeah I've used RealPlayer (used to be decent until Media Player Classic came along), and Windows 95. I remember using Netscape very briefly (during the AOL browser days lol). I only used Opera once when my PC died.

I can see why the EU decided to do this, but isn't it MS' decision to put whatever they want to in their OS. As long as it isn't harmful to the user, or steals their data, they should be allowed to include whatever they want.
