Repeat announcement for all non EU natives, print this in big letters and pin next to your screen:

Europe takes a sharp turn to the right* | *Policies* | *EU governance* | *Parliament | European Voice

Th EU is leaning right to far right, the socialists lost in a major way and weren't that hot to begin with.

I notice you dident take any issue that people always had a choice in browsers did you...no, because they always did hava a choice but the almighty EU got a hair up their collective behinds and decided they needed some more cash.

Also noted this: Windows 7 pre-orders big in Europe | Beyond Binary - CNET News
which to my simplistic mind means that people don't give a rat's behind if IE is included or not.

Next thing you can put next to your monitor:

All fines levied are distributed amongst their members per ratio of their contribution. NO monies are transfered to the EU budget

And I notice, again you dont address the REAL issue, users always had a choice......its not MS's fault if poeple dident use the options avaliable.
You really misunderstand my position in the whole MS-EU business. Apart from a small poke in some other thread here or there i am neutral. MS is just another company, putting out a product that by definition centers to the largest common denominator being mostly clueless desk jockeys tapping dreary stuff in some spreadsheet or word processor.

So i actually don't care, but i feel an inner need to help those who have not had the pleasure of a good general education.

So i just state the facts, as they are. If EU is right or wrong, i am unqualified to judge. I just am quite interested in the whole EU mess in general and follow it closely. MS is just a minor issue in view of the enormous powerplays from which the EU committee on Competition has protected me.

So, I dident realise you consider yourself so far above us "clueless desk jockeys", do you always need to insult others to feel better about yourself ?

How gracious of you to help us poor people you consider not having a good general education.

i guess i'll leave this conversation. We seem to got of on the wrong foot where you read things in my words which aren't there. Don't forget English is not my native tongue, and our cultures are completely different.

No hard feelings i hope

I won't get into the insults to IE and all it's users that seem to plauge this forum on a daily basis.

All I get from that is that FF users seem to think they are better than everyone else which sounds amazingly similar to those stupid apple commercials.

Get over yourselfs FF users, you aren't special and you never will be.

Rant over, sorry FF users you had it coming for a long time now and I know I'm not the only one who is sick of the slams about IE coming from you all. I don't slam FF so why do you all feel compelled to slam IE? It's time shut off the apple commercials already.

I just want to make something very clear:
- I do not criticize people based on what computer, OS or software they use, nor have I ever criticized.
- I do not say, write or think, that if somebody is not using the same computer, OS or software than I, he is stupid. Nor have I ever so said, written or thought

I believe this is a free world; everybody can buy and use whatever they want. I told earlier hier I use Firefox. I use it NOT because it makes me feel superior, I simply use it because I like it. I didnīt tell it because I think somebody is stupid, I told it because this topic is in my opinion very interesting.

Iīve read this thread very carefully, but I have not found any posts where a non-IE user calls IE-users stupid. This is a public forum with over 18,000 members; itīs obvious there are many different opinions among the members.
