#41 Re-install to patch a bug... Kewl! :-\

I certainly hope Ben gets some sort of patching mechanism in place before pushing v1.0 (which will no longer be "Tech Preview", but rather will finally be - GASP! - "FINAL") out. I'm afraid that the idea of re-installing a piece of software every time a bug is discovered and resolved (if I am to believe the sales dept. we're looking at less than 48h turnaround times here) might not exactly cut it with the wider audience (i.e. regular people, not Fx fanboys). Especially as the competition <cough> <cough> has this feature... AND already has a browser installed on 99.9(9)% of machines out there!
