Why doesn't microsoft throw some of it's weight behind Mozilla and ditch IE
forever. It doesn't suit their image.

Unfortunately, the PR doesn't work that way.  Do you really want to be buying
an entire operating system from somebody who just admitted they can't even
produce a workable browser with all their resources?

(Note this works differently in the Linux world, where the kernel crew doesn't
even pretend to write browsers, and the Firefox crew *just* does browsers, and
somebody else *just* does OpenOffice, and distros (for the most part) just worry
about integration issues, and everybody only claims to do their little part
well)

Seriously.  I mean, just look at Linux, Firefox, and OpenOffice.
Pristine code, not a single security vulnerability between them :)

Any complicated and evolving piece of software will have security
vulnerabilities all the time.
Maybe comparing and contrasting response to vulnerabilities would be
interesting?


Cheers
Chris
