TOP TEN REASONS MICROSOFT CAN'T REMOVE IE FROM WINDOWS

"Remove Internet Explorer!" says the judge. "No can do,"
says Microsoft. And here are the company's ten top reasons (reason no. 3
is my favorite <g>:

10. A number of procompetition products need IE to function! Like
Microsoft Money, Microsoft Office, Microsoft Encarta...
9.   All 10,000 Windows programmers are working on NT 5.0 drivers right
now, sorry.
8.  Just give us a few days; Bill's been pulling all-nighters working on
it.
7.   Steve Ballmer: "You know, we're just trying to keep the techies
down at the DOJ on their toes."
6.  Nah, it makes Reback see red...what fun!
5.  Brad Chase says that without IE's DLLs, Windows is "unsafe at any
speed."
4.  Obligation to Intel: need to produce slow OS software to  drive
sales of fast chips.
3.  Because.
2.  Can't pay U.S. judges enough to staff programming department.
1. Come on, how can we take over the world without IE? You're not
recording this, are you?
