Microsoft Update Slips In a Firefox Extension

rkt Did someone try to read what ClickOnce does ? (803 comments)

There are 500 comments in here and not one mentioning the "clickonce" technology made it to the top ?

Now I know why I stopped reading slashdot.

Microsoft has been installing plugins in firefox for a long time... so has Adobe, google (picasa), Apple(quicktime,itunes) and others. What freaks me out is how this issue is blown out of proportion for the wrong reason.

ClickOnce is similar to Java's webstart technology for those who understand Java and you can get more information here

If you let java do it, and apple do it and apple do it why are you so surprised that microsoft is doing it ? Is it because its part of Office suite ? And how is that different from Picasa or itunes ?

Please read before you reply to or rate comments on a website like this.

Small Town USA Competing With India

rkt The catch ? (496 comments)

There is no problem doing this in a small US town.

The problem is that u need to find very well trained people who are willing to live there and work from there and still be happy with what they get paid.

Its a funny thing that u guys think there are no traffic lights in india. The cities where these outsourcing companies work from are not 14 miles away from traffic lights and not 50 miles from a starbucks like coffee shop. Its hard to see how a computer savy group can live without computer shops around, without the modern amenities and most importantly without coffee !!
