Wow, way to troll. Ever considered that the effort of installing a different browser just isn't worth it to most computer users? Especially those who don't realize or don't care that they are being commercially exploited through the browser that was preinstalled on their operating system?

This is why having OEMs locked up was so advantageous to Microsoft in the first place. They were able to leverage the desktop monopoly they already had to place a clearly inferior product (at the time) onto users' desktops, at the expense of companies who were already in that market.

Maybe you might claim that IE6 is a superior browser now and they deserve the monopoly (for whatever reason), but they gained it through illegitimate means, regardless of how people like yourself twist the facts.
