Actually, I believe it's only for manufacturers on preinstalled new systems with XP. Which obviously will not be 32MB (and I would hope not 64MB) systems. If Netscape can convince a few hardware manufacturers to put Netscape 6.x on as the default web and mail clients on their new systems, that will be great. It might finally lead to some real competition!

Yeah, IE will still probably be preloaded: but if there's no "get on the internet" button that's tied to IE, and if AOL is tied to NS6, the entry-level users won't realize that, and they will never have that stage of thinking that Microsoft runs the Internet.
