    Windows means choice?!

    Oh man, I have rarely read anything as funny as the article in which MS accused Apple of hurting consumers and limiting choice, and then claiming windows means choice! What choice is that?! Any version of windows you want maybe? Anyway, this article just makes the first one that much more unbelieveable that any MS spokesperson could say any of that crap with a straight face. I have a hard time just reading that and keeping a straight face, let alone saying it out loud...

    I especially like how Microsoft says that making the lin launch IE no matter what preferences were set is ok and legal!

    I still think Windows is just nagwhere.

    'New windows updates are ready to install'... if you click it they ask install now or later... and you can't even say
    "Later: Never"

    It is like maxed at like 3 days...

    :rolleyes:

    I can't believe the DOJ didn't let them slide like before...

    Thanks for reminding me, I recently upgraded to Panther and I forgot I had that crap in my apps. Just dragged it to the trash and it gone! Hows that for choice, its gone for good, not just hidden from my start menu! :)
