Apple offering Safari to Windows users?

20 03 2008

This mightn’t seem like too much of an issue, but having iTunes and QuickTime installed on my PC, I often get notified of updates for those products through the Apple Software Update.  Yesterday, I saw this:

safari

I have never had Safari installed on my PC (on my Mac Mini, yes), so I can’t see how I would “select the items you want to update” given that there’s nothing to update.

Correct me if I’m wrong, but if Microsoft tried this on another OS, we’d all be reading about the legal ramifications and EU competition commissioners spouting fire and the like.

Before you flame me, yes I can and did click on quit, but this update is always there and there’s no option to decline this update permanently.  I’m also sure that, buried deep in some EULA I agreed to ages ago, I gave Apple the right to do this.  It doesn’t mean I have to like it, and I don’t.

If I want Safari on my PC, I’ll go to apple.com and download it when I want it.  At this point in time, I don’t.

UPDATE:

Apparently, I can set an update to be “ignored”, but I still get this as a sly reminder that it’s not really ignored:
