Windows As of today, Microsoft won't allow manufacturers to install XP on new netbooks," says blogger Kevin Fogarty. "That doesn't mean corporate customers who special-order hardware with XP won't be able to get it, or even that its market share ( 60 percent!) will drop any time soon.... It just means XP has taken the first babystep toward obsolescence and the long (really long, considering its market share) slide down toward the pit of minor operating systems like the MacOS X (4.39 percent) , Java ME (.95 percent) and "Other" (which I think is an alternative spelling for "Linux" (.85 percent).

RE[2]: Maybe an overdue step

Member since:

Especially considering that childs' brains are much more sensitive to microwave than us.

The transmitters on cell phones are far, far to weak to affect soft tissues.

Microwaves are non-ionizing radiation. They are not powerful enough to remove electrons from atoms. This means that they do not change the structure of molecules. All they can do is add a little bit of heat, which is quickly removed by blood circulation.

There is no science that supports the idea that cell phones are at all dangerous (unless you're on the phone while driving, but then, you deserve to crash in to a pole), only ignorance of science and fear or new technologies, which is far more damaging to a child's mind.
