    1. Microsoft is a monopoly. A Monopoly got bad and out for there greedy pockets. Why am i forced to pay 200 or 300 dollars for Windows Vista Ultimate edition. The Best they have. As for as Internet Explorer, it stinks, too many security bugs that should have been fixed before they put it out on the market. As a matter of fact if you delete every single registry key regarding internet explorer you will lose some functionality with windows XP. More like saying Use our Software or dont use XP at all. Maybe that should case you to feel that warm feeling when using firefox. Its Security Bug Free or limited and faster, not to mention you have the option to have Firefox remeber your passwords and usernames for every site that you go to that needs them. Very Convient. Say NO to Greedy Gates and IE.

    2. “Vista Does Not Suck” excuse me, but is that good or bad? Could I have a translation please, I am too old for playground language
