Excellent point - People I know personally that know whats going on with their comp's know to use another browser.
RK - I saw recently, although it may have been out for awhile and I missed it, that M$ is fighting over the Apple Ipod's patents and looks like the big Co. will get it. Crazy sh$t.
Word is too, don't quote me, that Apple possibly had the design for the Windows OS's but M$ took that too. It seems M$ is quicker to the punch and as quoted by CNET's Snr Editor, "...well, M$ just has way more lawyers than Apple..." and that's the driving force behind the patent grabbing.
I'm all for capitalism, but there comes a point when one gets too big it's unfair for competition, not to mention more importantly the consumer who may desire choices.
I primarily use XPP, but I dual boot to Linux.. so I'm not tttttotally against M$ either,
I feel they offer a more user friendly OS but their net browsing support Sucks!
Something I can't understand.. is some people actually pay for Opera.. Those banner ads aren't that bad.
