Would You Buy A Car Without An Engine?

There is are many days when I am really glad I left the old country and settled here in the USA, and this is one of them.

I just finished reading this post by Paul Thurrott entitled “Microsoft documents how Windows 7 E customers can get a browser” where he excepts the steps users need to take to install a browser because the main release of Windows 7 in Europe won’t include a browser.

We have known this for a while but I still think this is in-sane!

Selling an consumer operating system without a browser is like selling a car without an engine.

Imagine for a moment a trip to the car showroom where you can pick whatever car you want only it doesn’t have an engine. You need to make arrangements to procure your own engine and install it in the car yourself.
