No, I understood it quite well. What you missed is that the target
audience for the suggested use of Free Software solutions in those cases
are not those using specialized applications.
What you missed in my previous note is that I am simply not referring to
only websites but web applications also, specificity .NET web
applications. When I refer to feature rich I am speaking of things such
as view state, output caching, client-side validation, etc...
IE is not "feature rich", you're talking about highly specialized custom
applications -- which is predominantly what .Net is used for -- and
poorly, I might add, more often than not. The example is no different
than using, say, a Java add-on in Firefox. Should we then say that
Firefox is itself feature rich because it supports Java? Clearly, you'd
disagree... but then, you don't seem to know the difference between the
.Net framework and IE so your opinion is somewhat questionable.
Sounds to me like you're a .Net programmer who isn't happy that his
favorite toy relies on a piece of crap application to be pushed over the
web. Welcome to the real world, son. Those who are serious about
security and technology do not let arbitrary business decisions lead
them around by the nose.
