No, I disagree. They GET it with windows with AOL and maybe from their ISP, but! Are they deaf? don't they know Netscape word? do they read Papers? I am 100% positive they are at least aware of what Netscape is and it has browser. AOL is another case as far as I know they use sort of proprietary access to Inet, so not every browser will work, I do not have access to it, so I might be wrong.

Anyway, what I am trying to say is:

MS cleared gained first access to people in sense of first browser tried by them, BUT:

_IF_ people really though that they need some better browser or whatever else, they could just download it from Netscape!!! This means Netscape has no _major_ features which diff it from MS. Otherwise all other people would use it. AM I wrong?

they _had_ ability and free will to get other browser, why they didn't? Maybe because it's not _that_ better? Don't tell me people too stupid and like first thing they try. Only in case if that _first_ thing suits them more or less enough.

I will respond more when I get some food in campus :) a hell lot more so you will burn trying to get what I mean with my awful English :))))
