When the Shuttle Atlantis launched Friday ...

linuxwonder Re:Thank you NASA (167 comments)

I too grew up with the Shuttle. I watched the first one with my then 6 day old son! He and his wife recently had a baby boy. It is sad that he was not able to watch the last one with his son. Maybe there will be other such launches of some other space vehicle for them to watch together.

Microsoft Exploits Firefox 4 Uproar, Beats IE Drum

linuxwonder Win back my business... (315 comments)

One way to win back my business is to make IEx behave EXACTLY like FF!. Then maybe I wont have to work extra hours when some little known "feature" in IEx decides not to work. One stop shopping for all your JavaScript and CSS needs!

Can NetFlix be far behind? I would be nice if they would now switch to something else so that I could view my Instant View queue on my Ubuntu box without having to launch the !@#$% VM for XP!

Thin Client, Or Fat Client? That Is the Question

linuxwonder Re:It's the connectivity (450 comments)

Right on! I have been trying to convince my Network guy of just this very same thing. Centralized computing was thought to be a dumb idea a decade or so ago so everybody switched to a desktop environment. Now we are told that we should switch back to an environment that would essentially be the same thing. Still a bad idea!

Microsoft Aims To Close Performance Gap With Internet Explorer 9

linuxwonder Re:Let it go! IE is expensive .... for webdevelope (477 comments)

Amen! Whenever my boss asks me how long it will take to develop a web page, I first ask him if he wants it to work in IE. If he says yes, I double the time estimate!!!!! So for every hour I spend code JS for FF I spend another hour "fixing" it for IE.

linuxwonder Compatibility button? (477 comments)

They should put a "compatibility button" in this version as well to make it compatible with FF. Do they even run FF to see what a great browser can do?
