    Hey,

    The Cliffs notes:

    Gotta love the empire! - Their $iht doesn't even work with their other $iht...... :)

    In fairness, she does go on to say the following, which I guess is a good thing....

    Had to share,
    Cheers,

    I hate IE, not because it is slow. Not because it is bloated. Not because it launches and I type in an address, yet it isn't ready for me to enter an address yet. Nevermind that I have a relatively new notebook with 3GB of memory. Nah... none of that. Only for the fact of writing in exceptions to CSS rules, among other tweaks just to get it right for the spyware/malware/toolbar infested people that will not move away from IE. =(

    Hello, I'm a Ubuntu Linux Box :)

    I love it on my 1 remaining Vista box if I launch a .WMV file (WINDOWS own
    video format), Media Player opens and displays an error that says "The
    file you are loading uses a codec that is incompatible with the Windows
    Media Player", while behind the error box the video is in fact playing just
    fine! FAIL on both counts!

    Hence all my main computers all run Ubuntu (Debian) 8.10 just fine, all
    day long.

    I'm reading this thread from an iBook with Firefox. A few feet away from me is my server running Kubuntu. There's a couple Windows boxes in my house too, but we don't use IE on them.
