So when I buy a car in the EU instead of having the factory built radio, are they going to have 3rd pardy radios installed in it as well?

If someone made a case out of it, then probably yes. Tied selling is not allowed in most and probably all EU countries if it restricts competition. The remedy would of course not be that the other radios are installed but that you can choose another without a penalty. Does this count as a car analogy, b.t.w.?

well, after you install IE7 you first get a setup screen asking which search engine you want as default (a list of the better known ones, but with the option "define your own"). They could easily run something like that during Windows installation for browsers. And no, you don't need IE to download another browser. But for the bandwidth impaired they could easily put all the current ones on the DVD (soon out of date however).
