The way I interpret this, it doesn't seem they want to force anything either
way. It would appear that they also want the people to be able to exercise
their right to be a real dumb-ass and stick to Microsoft and their cronies.
Forcing Open Source and/or Linux down everyone's throat wouldn't be fair

Just like one should still be free to choose to become a bum in Brussels. It
does have it advantages too, you know. Especially when you throw all your
papers away, you get all sorts of perks from our government!

Or have I missed the plot here?

Microsoft programs are like Englishmen. They only speak Microsoft.
