Let's deal with those multiple platforms one at a time, and see what a cross platform content provider, user or ISP is getting when they choose IE

Solaris: Not actively maintained. Ask around, which MS developers maintain the Solaris codebase? None.

HP/UX: Not actively maintained. Ask around, which MS developers maintain the HP/UX codebase? None.

Both of the "Unix ports" exist primarily on paper, so that if a PHB asks "Can we deploy this on Unix" the MS drone can say "Oh, sure" knowing it will never be used in production.

Mac: This is a fairly competent Mac browser, which happens to be called "Internet Explorer" it shares practically no important code or differentiating functionality with Windows IE.

The only important thing "macpeep" has uncovered is that MS control the Wintel desktop, something even a US court has been able to figure out.

FWIW Our major (mentioned in the international press) geek humour site Temple ov thee Lemur sees around 2% Gecko users and rising slowly.
