Odd that [link] works fine in IE, just the root page that redirects.

People should be told that IE is bad, and shown alternatives (not that using another browser helps when IE is still installed and used by other apps). Of course why not block anyone using Windows XP, flaws in that have caused some of the biggest, more rapid virus outbreaks, and of course most of the spam. And Apple accepts money from Microsoft, so they're implicated. Linux GUIs and apps are often just MS clones, so they're supporting the MS way.

Intel appear to want to take the Xscale down their own ARM incompatible ways, which is an obvious lock-in attempt.

I don't see where "People should not use VirtualAcorn, should not bother upgrading that RiscPC, should not read banned books and should not leave the house after 8:30pm, either" came from, and as long as you don't buy any XBox games it's costing MS money, so that's ok.
