Hardware, Embedded Systems So, we have Microsoft slowly but surely trying to be a better citizen in the computing world - with the emphasis on trying. After years of dragging their feet, the company is finally implementing web standards in Internet Explorer, there's a boatload of interoperability information now, that sort of stuff. And then, just when you think they're starting to get it - they go behind our backs to do something incredibly insipid. It's small, you'll barely notice it, but dear lord, it's really, really annoying.

Microsoft should've provided a software interface to tap into, a standardised solution. It's idiotic to expect every OEM to write their own inconsistent bit of code to handle this.

This is Microsoft's fault.


Like if they really care with all the billions of customers and money they already have.

You remind me of this guy:
