PCWorld: The European Union is dropping its antitrust case against Microsoft in the wake of an agreement between Microsoft and European antitrust litigators to provide European users with more choice. Beginning in 2010, and extending over the next five years, Microsoft will allow European users to select the Web browser they use with Microsoft Windows using a ballot screen.

Beginning in March of 2010, Microsoft will push out an update to existing users of Windows XP, Windows Vista, and Windows 7 in Europe with a choice screen that will allow them to choose from twelve different Web browser options. New installations of the Windows operating systems will also receive the "Choice Screen Update" through 2015.
