Internet & Networking Following the EU investigation into Internet Explorer's inclusion in Windows, Microsoft made it possible to "turn off" Internet Explorer 8 in Windows 7, by removing the executable and every mention of the browser from the system. According to Opera and Google, this is nice, but not enough.

I didn’t say that one failed and another didn’t ;) They both fail the end user because they both don’t respect the end user, nor understand them clearly. In industrial design, software stands out as one of the greatest sore thumbs ever. Society simple could not function if everything analogue for the last 50 years was as backwards as software design.
