Ok, if I ever thought of actually purchasing an upgrade to Windows 7, this nipped it in the bud very effectively. If I ever purchase another computer it will be a Macintosh.
Why would Microsoft not support the use of its new "super-browser" Ie9 on the lowly XP user? Why not unless to force them to upgrade to yet another release of an operating system that is outrageously priced?
Bill Gates, just how rich do you need to be??
