    A quick skim shows it to be pretty cool... but MSN is the kiss of death...

    It also allows kids to watch porn without having to at least lie about their age.

    I ran MS for 25 years. I now run Mac's and Firefox. I have no need to go to the dark side. Been there, done that. I saw the light. I drank the kool aide.

    Once you go Mac, you never go back...




    Now, if we can just have an intervention on your plastic guns...

    Google has been the top dog for a long time now.
    I wish another search engine would come along
    and give them some competition.

    Yeah, Google is all about the money. Every search brings up mostly bogus links to sites trying to sell you crap, especially if you are looking for a review of something.

    Once you go Mac, your options are forever limited.

    That's interesting, I use Google frequently, usually multiple times per day, and I don't have that problem. Oh sure, there are a few sites hawking things, how many depends on what you're searching for. And many times that I use it, I'm shopping!. But otherwise, just reading the results lets you know what will most likely be useful to you.

    Briefly looked at it but I have to say I like what I see. now if I could just insert that into the search field in firefox.


    FYI no Mac's for me I'm pure Linux best of both Mac and PC, stability and versatility.


    Disregard the intigration into Firefox... Searched for it on bing and found it in 2 clicks.

    Alfack sez...

    Hmmm... never noticed... I have 4 Macs in my office, and they make me a good living... one of them running Win2K...

    But you are right...I'm limited to no viruses, no registry errors, no crashes or freezes, no worms, trojans, or security breaches, no spyware or malware, no Blue Screen Of Death, no Indian tech support...

    Hmm... I'm in the same boat, only on a PC.. Not to brag or anything

    Funny that I don't seem to have any of the virus or bluescreen problems you mention either. I must not get out enough. Never had to call customer support, either.

    It's easy to get an OS to work when you have a limited, proprietary set of HW you will run on.

    And those commercials are rated G-

    How do you compete against the 900 pound gorilla that is now a verb in our vocabulary?
