Like IE brings in any money, it's also free... but look how much money Microsoft is spending on defending their "freedom to inovate" (or monoplize, I can never keep those two strait [and I'm not the only one]). Some things are obviously more feesable than others, such as AOL dropping IE and embracing other OS's (after all, their already doing that one). I think WE can help with some of the other ones (such as spreading the word about standards compliance [maybe make a web page the "looks best with ANY standards compliant browser"] and getting ISP's to allow a choice [just call & complain (everybody LOVES complainers... :O)]). Also, if AOL drops IE, it will help solve some of the distribution problems 'cause everybody in America will have at least 3 CD's with Mozilla on it.
