Microsoft No Longer Blocking Gecko Users From Getting a Passport

For a long time, users of Gecko-based browsers could log in to Microsoft .NET Passport services but were blocked from registering for a new Passport. Now this latter restriction has been lifted and Gecko users can sign up for a Passport without being told to 'upgrade' to Netscape Communicator 4.08. Read bug 141279 for the details.

But apparently the demons of Redmond still refuse to let us Gecko users login and use their Chat (chat.msn.com) service. And the funny thing is... I'm running Win2k with Mozilla 1.1. They won't even let their own customers use their chat software. Damn ActiveX.
