    IE was available for Mac. It hasn't been since v5.5, though. There was even work on a UNIX version of IE at one point (Microsoft very carefully avoided mentioning the L word in their description of the platforms on which it would run, but I suspect it would support Linux too), but I've never found a version, and I don't know if they ever got around to a release.
    He just wants to make money, like all corporations...
    Its why i favor open source development and creative commons/gnu type licences.
    Corporations and open-source/Free software aren't mutually exclusive... have a look at RedHat for an example of a large company that's done very well indeed out of Free software.

    its spelt buSIness but I am a businessman, even though its as a webmaster, but I am not among the greedy Gates type.

    I agree though, money does drive the world, it just happens that it drives us differently ... eg (Gates, Anna Nicole)

    People being satisfied of the products being bought.

    Example:

    USER + GOOD PRODUCT = HAPPY USER
    COMPANY + HAPPY USER = MORE CHANCE OF USER BUYING PRODUCT AGAIN

    That's the traditional way of doing business, yup.

    I advise most computer users to stay away from Netscape Navigator. I have it and use it to test JavaScripts. (Since Netscape thought of JavaScript in the first place.) However, in the latest version, version 8, Netscape included WeatherBug in Netscape Navigator. Netscape mightn't have known this, but WeatherBug is actually some Trojan horse I can't remember the name of.

    The only reason I know any of this is that, when I was installing Netsape Navigator 8, I was watching the installation process when my computer said (in a familiar (spelling?) voice) "A Trojan horse has been detected." Being used to the feel of avast!, I immediately clicked 'Move to Chest' in the avast! alert box. If I didn't have avast!, I don't know what would have happened.

    P.S. To clean up the Mosaic story, people started calling Mosaic Mozilla, then...
