Oh come on!
I agree with the fact that there should be more choice, and to be honest I think what Microsoft are showing is fair enough (although did anyone else notice that this ballot is running in a browser? ;-)
No doubt when the time comes they'll just do something like they have done with Windows Update in Vista & Windows 7, no browser is required, it's just part of Control Panel now. I presume they'll do the same sort of thing, maybe coming up when the user starts their new machine as part of the welcome screen.
To be honest though removing the IE icon is just plain stupid if they're going to keep the rest of the icons. Why don't they keep the icons, text descriptions and just order it alphabetically, that way it'll be...
Chrome, Firefox, Internet Explorer, Opera...
Oh hang on, that means Opera will be last...
Okay, do it by company name first...
Microsoft Internet Explorer
Opera Software um... Opera
Ahh no that won't work either. Not unless Opera rename their browser to something like "Aaardvark's A1 Browser Program". Yeah, don't see that happening.
Troll icon, because well, thats what Opera is starting to be now.
While they're at it, could Opera actually update the Wii browser for better Flash support and tabbed browsing please?!??!?
