Has anyone here bought a new PC recently? I was just looking at my copy of PC Plus (UK) and noticed that of the 3 laptops they had on test (all running WinXP), all 3 had a Netscape 6 icon on the desktop and only one had an IE icon. They were made by Mesh, Samsung and Pico.

If this is representitive of the industry as whole, then Mozilla's market share should start rising to a respectable level again.

BTW - There were no other reviews where you could see what was on the desktop of a new machine.
