I want to make a point here

What is the fuss around Windows?

Windows is owned by Microsoft right?

Why should Opera take Microsoft to court and especially European courts and sue them?

This is injustice.

If I give my car for a ride to my friend for a few days, is he entitled to sue me when I say 'NO' :-X

I need some clarification. Can someone tell me? :D

Because they can.

European law is European law.

Don't like it? Tough shit.

Opera had what they wanted (or not... ;D), MS complied, end of story, if Opera keep suing, they'll be screwed, they already are in fact as those who prefer IE will stick to IE with the ballot screen, those who were on Firefox, okay, you got the idea, Opera market share won't get a single point more out of that, tough shit  ;D

edit: suing Microsoft indefinitely won't make Opera shine more than it does, if it does  :D
