#28 IE Statistic (if you can call it that)

First of all, do you actually believe "IE has 98% market share and growing" is true?

Secondly, are you counting the non-Windows platforms? Since IE is only available for Windows and Mac, anyone using another OS ( ie BeOS, BSD, Irix, Linux, OS/2, OpenVMS, or any of the many flavors of unix ) does not even have an option of using IE if they wanted to.

Thirdly, are you counting AOL and Compuserv users as part of the market share using IE? Or have you left them out of the statistic too? If you follow these forums much then you should know that the latest beta of the Compuserv software is using Mozilla code. If things go well then AOL will be next. Hmmm, what would that do to the market share numbers?

Do your calculations include WebTV and other such devices? How about portable devices like a PDA? I have not seen IE much in embedded systems.

You accuse others of being "wrapped up in their own little worlds" but apparently you have not looked outside your windows to see that the real world consists of lot more than what is dreamt of in your philosophy (or your dreamland statistics).
