    Windows 7 with IE is now a GO according to the EU

    The agreement between Microsoft and the European Commission on the bundling of Internet Explorer means Windows 7 is cleared to ship with IE included later this month.
    Sorted at long last and probably way to late to matter.

    Europe clears Windows 7 for takeoff ? The Register

    Oops! I thought they had decided not to give IE8 in the retail version due to people having non-compatible stuff, never mind, title changed again!
