Honestly, I don't see bundling IE with the OS as leveraging a monopoly. Frankly, people just expect a web browser to come with the OS. How inconvinient would it be for you to install Netscape or Firefox or whatever without simply being able to go to their website?
how do you download it without one lol
that whole case was a "witch hunt" ... unfortunately - it seems to have chased all the risk takers out of ms - and there is alot of tiers of aproval now and legal stuff because of it
