I agree. Remember when the Gov. tried to break them up and then suddenly dropped that and ma a bargain? That is hen they made the deal to hand our privacy to the government on a digital platter.

A quick check on the internet will tell you why the order to break Microsoft apart was dropped and it have anything to do with any secret government deals.

The judge in the case, Penfield Jackson, admitted he didn't know anything about technology and was actually caught napping DURING the trial at one point. He also made statements against Microsoft that an appeals court found to be biased, comments not unlike what you see on this thread from other ignorant posters. So yes, his ruling was considered invalid as well it should have been. If you were the one being accused of something wouldn't you want a fair trial?

Get a bigger hard drive lol

As for IE.. Only ignorant fools use IE so.. If they get caught with this its no real loss.. Besides you can already clear out the realavent information quite easily.. Why do you need a special stupid button?

I haven't used IE for years and quite frankly i never will use it... Microcrap is the Devil.. Only reason i have any MS software at all is so i can play video games.

That's right. Microsoft exists to make life hell for people like you. The more you suffer the better they feel. The more money they make, the more they can screw up your technology. They also have little cameras planted in your house where they can watch you scream and shout at the computer and throw and kick stuff when an application or the OS doesn't go your way. And the little devils at Microsoft point at their feeds from those little cameras and spend their weekends laughing their a$$es off at ignoramuses like yourself.

I honestly don't understand folks like you. If a company gets too big they must be evil, huh? Google, Microsoft, Apple - all out to do the world a buttload of harm, right?

Yea all the open source OS'es use M$ monolithic structure

Yea all the open source OS'es moved from multi to single user because it was working so well for M$

Untill Windows leaves behind the whole NT structure, they will always be behind any *nix based OS. *nix was built with safety and networking in mind. Windows evolved from a single PC OS to the bloated spaghetticode it is today. Where do you think all the security holes come from? Let me tell you it is not from sound programming.

Your comment about downloading a complete distro and compiling it yourself is just pure and utter BS (ever heard of Gentoo btw?). This is 2008, not 1998 those days are well and gone. Welcome to the future.

What the hell are you on mate?

I will choose the OS and browser that is under the greatest scrutiny by security experts, that being MS products, they aren't allowed to get away with indiscretions of privacy, others are.

Wait, what??

In what world is Windows more secure then ANY other OS? Could you name me some viruses in the wild for Mac or Linux?
Want me to name you some for Windows 1.0 through Vista?

About browsers, you do realise Opera is the single most secure browser out there at the moment, right? No? Here:

More security

Notice how Opera (which had a lot less security issues to begin with) has been 100% patched?

And last point (posted this earlier):
Acid3 results
IE: 18%
Opera: 100%

Nope. This does:
Microsoft's "battle plan"

Evangelism Is War
Our mission is to establish Microsoft's platforms as the de facto standards throughout the computer industry. Our enemies are the vendors of platforms that compete with ours: Netscape, Sun, IBM, Oracle, Lotus, etc. The field of battle is the software industry. Success is measured in shipping applications. Every line of code that is written to our standards is a small victory; every line of code that is written to any other standard, is a small defeat. Total victory, for DRG, is the universal adoption of our standards by developers, as this is an important step towards total victory for Microsoft itself: "A computer on every desk and in every home, running Microsoft software."

Our weapons are psychological, economic, and political–not military. No one is forced to adopt our standards at the barrel of a gun. We can only convince, not compel. Those who adopt our standards do so as a rational decision to serve their own ends, whatever those may be. It is our job to ensure that those choosing an operating system are presented with an overwhelming abundance of evidence and reasoned argument in favor of our standards–so overwhelming that the choice of our standards seems obvious, or (ideally) that the developer is not even aware that a decision was faced, and a choice made.

We do this by understanding the barriers that might otherwise prevent the developer from adopting our standards, and removing them; by understanding the inducements that might facilitate the developer's adoption of our standards, and providing them; by understanding the arguments of our competition, and countering them.

Our Mission

The Charter of Microsoft's Developer Relations Group is clear:

Drive the success of Microsoft's platforms by creating a critical mass of third-party software applications and business solutions.

This mission statement contains both the goal which we are striving to achieve (the success of Microsoft's platforms) as well as the means by which we are to achieve it (by creating a critical mass of third-party software applications and business solutions). Let us examine it carefully.

Bill is such a sweethearth isn't he?

EDIT: Almost missed the best part!!

We're here to help MICROSOFT®!
MICROSOFT pays our wages
MICROSOFT provides our stock options
MICROSOFT pays our expenses
We're here to help MICROSOFT
By helping those developers ...
...That can best help MICROSOFT ...
...Achieve MICROSOFT's objectives
Did anyone miss the point, here?

Since I actualy do not go to porn sites, believeing that if you can't touch the one you like then why look, When I get IE 8 First thing I'm going to do is hit that button and visit every boring site I can find! If this button actualy is a way to log your activity and not what its advertised as(like I believe that) Might as well baffle them with BS!!

Don't be fooled by the hype MS is not your worry, it's google.

Porn, youtube, ATS and the Tesla/UFO/Free Energy Conspiracy.
Duh, Google that Google.

Well 911 and other conspiracies just don't have the staying power
I can block porn on youtube by not showing my age.
I'm always specious of youtube channelers showing their age,
oops its porno guess I'll watch now that its here.

IE8 with a new hidden directory and some hashing like FireFox
must be the new privacy mode re design.

I never said anything "ruled", I just pointed out some obvious flaws in previous posts.
If using facts to dispute an argument is acting like a 12 year old, I wish more members on here would act like a 12 year old ^^

I didn't point you, nor anyone else. Four pages of "which is better" and "what's wrong with the other", is all I was pointing out. As if arguing about it is going to change either sides minds.

I just dnlded Opera due to its mention here. So far I like it better than Microshaft!! It seems quicker and changing from one site to another is definatly faster!

Will Internet Explorer 8 finally fix the huge (almost intentional) security holes all the other Internet Explorer's had?

Probably not.

I'll stick with open source thank-you-very-much.

and IE takes up so much space..

Um, what? How much space can a browser possibly consume?

My IE6 on Win2K takes a whopping 11.6mb, with Firefox v2 taking 28.8mb

heh, was looking at the wrong thing on the control panel, actually it's firefox 3 that takes up 1.92 GB..

1.92 gigawhats? 1.92 gigawhats? Great Scott !!

Man thats all the porn you're looking at! I get that som.. I've heard of people getting that sometimes..

Close that thing down and restart it.. Thats just a stupidly insane amount of memory to hog for a browser. My firefox is hogging a whopping 120megs.

Sometimes it does break down and start eating ram tho, and can consume up to 500megs, but I feel that and euthanise the process, humanely. You either have a gazillion extensions, hit a website with a nasty embed, or are using a bazillion tabs and expecting FF to live on the smell of a burning cpu.

Yeah I actually removed it, doing a clean install, I think I'm going to use ubuntu as well..

Wow, now that's a new one. I have to agree with you all that it's more likely to track your logons and url's.

Stick with Firefox!!!

All I can say is that I finally installed IE8 and thus far I love it. Pages load much faster and the presentation on my computer is much improved. ATS display is incrediblty improved. Looks like they made some size and font adjustments that were not possible with IE7 ( I tried them all). I can actually tell where my cursor is when I type this messgage which was a struggle at best with IE7.

Edited for spelling which hopefully will improve, now that I can see what I'm typing.
