MS isn't banning 3rd party browsers in Windows 8, as sensational as that might sound.
They are just limiting apps - ALL new apps - to the metro UI, where they clearly want the innovation to be centered. Windows on ARM is focused touch and mobile, not legacy.
i would also say its a bit of a red herring. browsers are free and a commodity for most users.
fascinating as always (and I liked your speech at Midem).
innocent question: can you think of situations in the past where protectionism was a good thing? might inform the current debate.
