I think that's the most boorish statement I've heard in a looooong time. A company (M$) whose product I paid for, trying to upgrade a browser version that when installed wastes my desktop icons & sidebar, are trying to push a product, that's for sure. I'm quite happy with my notebook running Vista, it's still updated by Microsoft & still a viable OS. I don't want free stuff forced on me if it doesn't work. If that's being a hippy, fine. I'd rather be a hippy than a tendentious pillock.
