that is stupid, an operating system is supposed to give you the ability to browse the internet, and Microsoft does that by having internet explorer. Why is this rule applied only to Microsoft, apple has Safari as default and no option to install another browser. Is the law different just because Microsoft has more users. It is stupid.

What about OS X with only safari?
