This topic always goes around and around in the same circles. Dave et al, listen carefully. This has happened because the powers that be have decided that MS have acted in an anti-competitive fashion / abused a monopoly. That is not the situation for the myriad other examples that are always raised.
Back on topic, I am curious to see how this affects browser stats. Nobody seems to be talking about what seems to me an obvious result: Google Chrome will drastically increase in popularity, taking away from MSIE. Why? Because the uninformed will either go for the familiar "e" logo or the familiar "Google" logo. Firefox will remain mostly unchanged, as will Opera (oh the irony), etc.
