Mozilla & Gecko clones "Over the last couple of weeks, Mozilla has finally stepped up its 64-bit testing process. There are now five slaves dedicated to building Firefox for Windows x64, which means that from Firefox 8 and onwards, you'll be able to pick up 64-bit builds that are functionally identical to its 32-bit cousins but operating in native 64-bit CPU and memory space." Th 64bit version is about 10% faster, benchmarks show.

At the time i wrote my last comment i was not aware that Maya was on Linux. You have opened my eyes to that fact and i thank you.

When i talk about pirated material i was reply to another person who was talking specifically about software piracy. Movie/Music piracy is a much more common practice but was not what i was talking about. As to your comments about most computer users, if you take all the personal computers in china into acount then yes, software piracy is rampant, thanks to Microsofts softer policy on piracy to certain other companies. But discluding China, most of the computers in the world are bought with a legal copy of a Windows OS on them.

I was talking about pirated copies of Photoshop. I have read that Photoshop is the most-pirated software.

As for your observation that "most of the computers in the world are bought with a legal copy of a Windows OS on them" ... while true for desktop computers (and only desktop computers), this too is a great dis-service to people.
