America Online is looking to expand its presence as the world’s leading ISP by having PC manufacturers place an AOL icon on the desktop of Windows-based systems. Earlier this month, Microsoft announced that PC makers could customize the icons that appear on the desktop at boot, a first. In return, AOL will offer PC makers commission for each new subscriber. While America Online has been bundled with Macs for some time, an AOL icon has never graced the Mac OS desktop.
