I just received a Dell XPS 10 tablet for my birthday. The tablet runs Windows RT. I am a fan of the Firefox browser and note sadly Firefox is not available on Win RT. I'm crying foul! What's the deal here? Didn't Microsoft learn their lesson from the EU fines for restricting browser and media player installation on European versions of Windows? Am I missing something? Please feel free to weigh in on this with my thanks!

Hello,
Well in some devices their are some minus points are available and for that you need to be used to for some things which you can not fix.
So better you use what you got and be happy in it.

why should anyone be happy with Microsoft? They thumb their noses at all things thrown at them in terms of anti trust violations, given they have paid hefty fines for doing so. But fines are just a cost of doing business for Microsoft. Be happy? Sorry but I am not buying an ounce of that!
