    Bug #46647

    Some would claim it's more useful for web development than a kitchen sink ever could be. I, on the other hand, hate coffee...

    Comment #11 From S÷ren 'Chucker' Kuklau (gone) 2002-02-17 02:56 PDT [reply] -------

    You know very well that _if_ Microsoft will ever support it, they will use
    proprietary extensions.

    They won't support Beck's Beer, but only MS Beer 2003, for instance.
    Opera and iCab.
    lol MS Beer 2003

    ------- Comment #42 From Alex Vincent 2001-05-26 10:13 PDT [reply] -------

    I hate to ask this, but being a total novice as to what XBL is, is this a
    serious thread or an inside joke?

    Hey, now. Did you notice the date on that? That was almost five years ago!

    I've learned a lot since then, and I'm slightly involved in the XBL 2 specification...
