"... than hoping that the unregulated world of bitcoins doesn't get hacked again."
Bitcoin has never been hacked. If some armed robbers raid a bank or some phishers nab some online banking details, do you say that sterling has been hacked again?

Little tip for you: you could have just said, "flibble bibble wibble," it's a lot less typing.
"Who gives a shite?"
"Microsoft’s all-encompassing IDE loser"
Typo or fact? I'm inclined to go with the latter.
It's most likely a smokescreen put out surreptitiously by the Elop Trojan, to make it look like there are other suitors before Microsoft swoops in for the premeditated kill. Helps keep anti-competitive investigations off their backs.
I see the Elop Trojan is working to perfection. Not long now until Microsoft can buy Nokia + its years of accrued patents for a bargain-basement price.
I want to install Other, it looks like a pretty popular browser.
My paranoid? Or his paranoid? Let's just all share and call it ours.
So You Say MS is Relevant
*in* the server room? Since when?
... the article. It's not lenticular. It works in a different way - more like the forthcoming Nintendo 3DS' 3D screen.
Some Further Explanation
Saying "don't be an idiot" isn't an ad hominem attack. Check your definitions - you'll sound more intelligent if you don't misuse its meaning in a logical debate. And don't be an idiot. :-)
Regarding the case in point - the growing trend for the web browser to be central to apps and the cloud vision that Microsoft, Google and others are pumping out, I believe that yes, there will be innumerable cases where the quality of the browser will be the deciding factor in which OS to go with, after all the OS is being marginalised by the very same visionaries. Not among the diehards obviously, but let's not ignore the fact that the vast majority of computer users aren't diehards.
Wrong - Vendor Lock-In
"Good on them for taking the fight to Chrome, Opera, Safari and the increasingly wayward Firefox but guys, c'mon, you're not going to make your next $Billion making people love your browser in 2010."
Don't be an idiot. The new all-signing all-dancing browser ONLY runs on their latest proprietary platforms. Not so much Platform 9 as 1.5 Platforms.
By selling the browser *hard*, and that includes all the fanfare that standards-wise it's "better" than the competition, they hope to get more converts to the questionable OS it runs in.
Ballmer Stats Fail
"350 million new PCs sold in the last year and 240 million licenses of the year-old Windows 7"
So 110 million new PCs sold *without* Windows 7. MS epic fail.
It's no different to MS's stance - do they do their own Java port? No, they've actively excluded Java for years. Big whoop, Java lives on.
You missed the science bit
So what makes a touchscreen smartphone any more a virus carrier than a button-laden dumbphone, other than this article being an exercise in headline grabbing?
Now we need an opera in the ultimate logical language, one that even Vulcans would be proud of.
Erm, Need A Clue?
This is *exactly* what Google, very publicly, aimed to do from the start.
This Is It?
This is the best they can announce even after the hefty bribes they've been offering games developers?
The icon says it all.
But It's Not Google
And never could be.
Facts - try getting the first
Idiot. iOS 4 is derived from OS X, in turn derived from BSD - a genuine UNIX, if such a concept can exist. Your point is what?
Jiga Watts was correct
As in "Jumping Jiga Watts!"
Kids these days, tut.
Remember "Trustworthy Computing"?
That is all.
