Prior to this order, OEM's could suffer financial loss (i.e. could not offer
the OS, which
basically removes their product from the shelf) if they did not load
IE explorer. At least now,
in principle, they have a choice.
The next step (no pun intended) is to get things set up such that an OEM
suffers no financial pinch by providing a selection of OS's to the consumer.
And at the same time, get the consumer to understand that there are other
choices available to them.
