A promotional catchphrase.

A joke website IIRC.

Here we go ... another Windows Lemming Lunatic who equates Open Source
with "bullshit", instead of Freedom.

LOL! That like you saying "Oh it's OK for you to abide by the law, but
as soon as *I* break the law I get caught ... no fair ... boo
hoo". Are you retarded? Mozilla devs *follow* W3C standards, but
Microsoft breaks them, and *that* makes Mozilla the "guilty" party???

There's a world of difference between IE failing to work on a
standards compliant Website, and Firefox not working on a Website that
has been deliberately booby-trapped to break it. Of course if MS
concentrated more on industry standards, and less on its paranoid
infatuation with alienating the competition, then maybe they wouldn't
be so inclined to break websites ... deliberately or otherwise.
That's what *standards* are for, and why they are set and ratified by
*independent* bodies, rather than commercial interests.

The examples you cite above are little more than promotional material,
unlike MSN which is a major portal that, I assumed, was run seriously
by professionals ... however it seems to have been overrun by kiddies.

Non-compliance is about the only thing MS is any good at. Call a Spade
a Spade, I say.

Just because you've been exposed as a fuckwit, there's no need to cry
about it.

Now off you go and live in my killfile, like a good little WinTroll.
