    Exclamation XP Service Pack 2 Timebomb?

    I was just reading the MS site comments about having to check your website for SP2 compatibility. It sounds bad. I recommend everyone go over there and have a read - the impact on IE will be considerable

    Just looked through it quickly. I see nothing bad about it? malicious active x blocked, downloads only happen when the user wants it to, one popup per page, can't position windows off screen. What's bad about that?

    I suggest next time before you say anything else to make you look stupid, read the article

    Yes, there are many times i think microsoft can be evil and annoying, and im not particularly fond of Internet Explorer, but I have learnt that you cant just go around saying "MS are stupid".

    While i dont use IE and dont use MS Office, I do use Windows XP, MSN Messenger and Media Player 9. So I cant say all MS stuff is bad otherwise I should be on Linux with the relative programs.

    Anyway, I read the article and it all looks good to me, 1 popup per page is handy, athough if theyre doing that they could have jus put in a popup blocker like firefox. The rest of the stuff seems to make sense.

    i was under the impression that they already had, and no Mhtml - i noticed it too.

    so what do you use in place of MS office m-s?
