Governments globally are starting to realize that the OS that it's citizens use are more then just some toy, but an integral part of communications and a nations GNP, and security.
As govs become more aware of how damaging cyberattacks are, they are realizing that they need to start regulating the Operating system that 90% of there population is using.
So they are just running out of patients with Microsoft's games. It's not just the EU, but India, Russia, China, and many Asian and South American countries.
So we are just seeing the beginning of a trend. A good one if you ask me too.
One that will really level the playing field of Linux.
We really need Windows to ship with something like the Synaptic package manager, that allow many applications to be searchable and super easy online installation.
This way user and see a menu of browsers to choose from and can install several with just the click of a mouse.
