Interesting part on Yahoo!. But maybe I'm biased. Different people have different needs I guess. Yahoo! suits me fine.

But with MS staring at it keenly, I'm keeping my fingers crossed. :bounce:

Great fun, with more than a grain of truth.
I was actually going to post the URL when I saw Dino had done it already.

Probably the least anoying one is Outlook which by now is really useful and has some features that are useful. Most of the others are not far from the truth. I would have chosen Qiuicktime instead of Outlook. That and flash are my petpeeves on the net. Quicktime is as full of problems and security holes as Java and also needs to be manually uninstalled each time it is updated. On top of that you have to pay for it if you do not want the ads. Each update seeminly meeds a new payment. As it is being updated as often as Java that could become expensive.

Flash and Quicktime are both banned from my computers as is Norton and Adobe.

I enjoyed that read as well. :) Looked at it yesterday - can't recall if Quickbooks was included. If it wasn't - IT SHOULD BE!!! Argh!

Glad that you all enjoy it. :)

Side note, I ban Realplayer. The worst player IMO.
