Re: Microsofts view of progress is to reward loyal users by punishing them!
Sometimes I print webpages. For doing this I find other browsers inferior to
IE7. After I learned to use the Alt key to get the menu bar I disliked IE7 less.
I've tried Firefox, Google Chrome, and Safari - have 'em installed, but use them
little. You could do that, or if you are running XP you could revert to IE6.
Perhaps the best developers like cutting edge stuff, like cloud computing. The
corporation sees that as an area where it's losing to the competition. So
between operating systems and browsers maybe being uninteresting to top talent
and Microsoft's need to win out over the competition, I guess all us who want
the old stuff to be greatly improved will just have to adjust to that not
happening. Windows 7 is supposed to come out as the Vista that ought to have
been - a dock and an improved file system not developed in time for Vista. These
are reported not to be in the beta yet.
In the graphics field, when it turned out there was an increasing amount of
interest in 2D animation, attention turned back to that somewhat from 3D. I may
be giving up on substantial browser and OS improvement prematurely here.
