Me too, me too !

What's up with all the "me too" messages here ? In case you hadn't notived this is Osnews not slashdot, you can reasonably assume most people here know that 25mil downloads != 25mil users. But it IS a lot, regardless of how many duplicate downloads there were - 25mil downloads registers you as a player, one of the big boys.

So then why is this news really relevant enough to be posted on osnews? Simple : this gives us ammunition to push Firefox in the workplace next time the boss bitches about some virus/worm on the loose. I mean I can just imagine PHBs everywhere thinking "25mil downloads? one of the most popular windows programs ? Why aren't we using this yet ?" when they read this news
