The Commission is now formulating a remedy that would include the creation of a ballot screen containing a selection of browsers for users to choose from when they install Windows on their new computers. Microsoft, however, is trying to derail the process by offering a version of Windows 7 without a browser (IE), said Jon von Tetzchner, the CEO of Norwegian browser maker Opera. “They are trying to replicate the remedy in the media player case, which we all know didn’t work.” “If Microsoft got its way there would be no ballot screen, just a version of Windows that has no browser at all—just like the edition ‘n’ of Windows (Windows Media Player less Windows) that resulted from the earlier European antitrust case,” he said.
