Ballot Screen for Browser Choice in Windows 7

And here comes Opera's CTO, complaining about the inclusion of logos in the ballot screen.
I'm sorry, but I think this is ridiculous. Opera cannot afford to go down this road of what is whining in my mind. There are reasons why Opera remains a minor browser in many minds, and it's not all because of the low recognition. Comments in the TechFlash post and others around other tech sites show that others do not support this. What Opera needs to do is to make the power of the Opera browser accessible to the masses, not to complain on Microsoft's generosity.
"We're not sure about the use of logos," Lie said. "The blue 'e' has become so associated with the Internet in general, due to the bundling with Windows. We think using the blue "e" might not be such a good idea."
