Only verified version of windows are eligible for upgrade to IE7 and IE8, aint it?

Maybe the do-no-evil corporation has some unlicensed copies running and is desperate to hide that fact, just guessing...

Ok, time to dump google search for security reasons. Bing works perfectly fine for me anyway. Google is starting to sound like apple these days. Acting so cool with nothing to make them cool in the first place. It's a search engine...big deal!

Yes, Bing is good. I liked it enough that it is my homepage and my default search provider. Yet, I still end up clicking that little arrow right of the magnifying glass in my browser search box and then hit......... "Google" I have to admit that some searches are just better searched with Google.

Google already admitted they were running Windows XP on their systems still. XP is almost ten years old. o_o'

It's prety clear that Google wants to replace Windows. Not just internally but world-wide. So internally they probably loath giving money to Microsoft. It's the only angle that the descision makes any sense.

The upshot will probably be that their Windows software goes down the crapper like most of Apple's Windows software. When your developing for a platform that by company policy you are required to deride at every turn, the results will not be good.
