There's an option in Windows 7 RC now to where you can turn off IE8 completely to where it's not on the W7 OS at all...
So if you never use it, you can now get rid of it altogether!

The EU wanted MS to provide a 'selection screen', where you could choose which brower(s?) you wanted on your machine. MS decided that they'd just remove the browser. One question - if you don't have a browser, how do you install a browser? OEMs can install a browser, but is MS going to lean on them to insure they only install IE?

MS once again demonstrates it isn't at all interested in it's customers.
