Microsoft is making a business decision that makes sense.

For them.

For those of us who prefer not to DRM our machines to death, XP is going to be around for some time to come. Most folks like us stopped using explorer long ago.

This decision helps open source browsers gain greater market share so I welcome it.

Anything Microsoft does that helps open source alternatives is win in my book.

Thanks MS!!!!

Erm.... Microsoft is a business. They are required by law to consider their shareholders' interests above all else.
