Geneva Tax Authorities Distribute Mozilla 1.2.1 to Taxpayers

Saturday February 15th, 2003

The German Heise magazine is reporting that all taxpayers in the Swiss canton of Geneva are being given a CD which includes a French version of Mozilla 1.2.1. The CD also includes GEtax 2002, a tax declaration program, and 1.0.1.

Though the Heise article is in German, a rough English translation is available courtesy of Google. Thanks to johann_p for the news.

Absolutely. By default (and without asking the user) every version of MS Office since Office 97 has put something called the "Office Startup Assistant" into the Startup folder on Windows (OSA.EXE for anyone who watches their processes in WinNT's task manager). If that's not preloading components then I'd love to know what it is doing! At least OOo's installer actually asks if you want to dedicate resources to helping it start up faster.
