Good to know not to be the mayority of the consumers
I will not buy a next PC, I will buy:
Motherboard, CPU+cooler, Graphics-card, RAM, drives, power supply, case.
If I will use Win 7, I will buy the cheapest 64 bit
System-Builder version (when possible US english -> GAMES!)
(in ordinary brown box) for gaming only.
I slowly change to Linux mint 9 (gnome) for the rest.
(* first version with my upgraded PC originally from 2001/2002.)
"Apple bolts chastity belt on super svelte MacBook Air"
-> No upgrade-ability and no user-maintenance-ability
-> Only Apple authorized persons are allowed to change parts/repair for much $$$/€€€
-> & bad connectivity inclusive
Typically Apple -> pure (expansive) lifestyle toy
Apple is getting more and more a replacement religion.

Using M$ IE because "IE = Internet" for them -> "don't know" Mass!
They use M$ IE because "IE = Internet" for them they don't know whats this "mysterious" browser they switch on the PC and click @ the blue "e" and are into the Internet.
"2/3 of the world"s (mostly Windows) users are:
-> THE famous "generation 50+",
-> using only some programs (Computer @ work ONLY -> Example: office assistants )
-> people that look at the browser like at a 0815 hammer from discounter ,
-> PEBKACs ( = people permanently nerving the IT-Support -> learning resistant !!! ),
-> don't want know / care about
-> politicians (excluding Pirate-Party & other IT-compatible)
PEBKACs ( = DAUs in german) :
http://www.dau-alarm.de/ (daily German IT/-customer-support manic)
Same situation with Safari on MacOSX (but less absolute number BUT STANDARDS COMPLIENT & WITHOUT ActiveX alias InfectiveX)
I am an Opera-user and I will change from WindowsXP to Linux mint 9 (gnome) soon (keeping Opera)
plus evtl. Windows 7 for games ONLY!
My classification: Advanced User.
Easier possible solution -> slim the IE to basic
Internet Explorer for:
-> System (like now, mannnny programs require basic functions of it),
-> Windows-Update (like now, trusted Windows-System-care-website) ,
-> IntrAnet (like now, jepp, company network ONLY, as browser)
-> Browser-Choice- & download (Internet) -> here without ActiveX, VBScript, JScript NEW!
(same with all other Internet zone websites, browserchoice.com.eu ist the start-page)
=> to take the "2/3" to care about browsers and try them and choose the favorite one
(or more). the users learn M$ IE is NOT the Internet .
Correct, North Korea isn't -> NO Internet -> NO browser (for the citizens).
Even often (for some) no electricity (and for the majority never)
(excluding political leaders, they have)
Look @ Korea at night from space
