Full Article Attached Astounding Comments From the WSP

Thursday July 20th, 2000

The WSP (Web Standards Project) now states that it is interested in released products more than compliance, and has released one of the most astounding pieces of work I have seen come out of their office.

The WaSP, a pseudonym which speaks for the whole WSP (or at least its leaders) has written a piece taking Netscape to task for failing to produce a browser in the allotted time limit. Click "Full Article..." below to read my response. For the record, I am not an employee of Netscape.

Where did you get this statistic? Pardon my French, but are you on crack?

Over the past year, I've been providing tech support to people that bought new computers. It must've been luck, but I haven't seen A SINGLE new computer with any version of Netscape preinstalled!

An acquaintance of mine that holds a computer shop said that he has never preinstalled Netscape since Windows 98.

Buy a Gateway, buy a Dell PC? Do you see Netscape preinstalled there? Compaq? No, no and no.

Please, get your statistics right, or at least take a few hours to visit a bunch of computer shops in your area. You'll quickly drop the "90%" thought.
