Warning: This post was published more than 12 years ago.
I keep old posts on the site because sometimes it's interesting to read old content. Not everything that is old is bad. Also, I think people might be interested to track how my views have changed over time: for example, how my strident teenage views have mellowed and matured!
But given the age of this post, please bear in mind:
- My views might have changed in the 12 years since I wrote this post.
- This post might use language in ways which I would now consider inappropriate or offensive.
- Factual information might be outdated.
- Links might be broken; embedded material might not appear properly.
Many thanks for your understanding.
Although I’m sure the anti-Microsoft camp will try, I can’t see that this is anything but good news… and something Microsoft should have planned to do all along. It was always foolish to say they were only going to release new versions of IE with new versions of Windows, because that simply could not sustain their position in the browser market.
