Firefox Putting on the Pressure

Security

Microsoft must be feeling the pressure from competing browsers as they are putting a lot of thought into how to improve Internet Explorer. However, they probably won't have a new version ready until Longhorn goes gold planned for 2006. Eweek is carrying more on this story.

In other news, Bill Gates' trip to Turkey only proved that Linux is cutting into his profits more and more as well. The newer Turkix was found to be quite popular there and is picking up speed as other European nations begin to show interest.

UPDATE: More Passing the Buck from M$.

Seems M$ is now trying to blame Core Security Technologies and Finjan Software for publishing proof of concept code that exploits some of the many security holes in it's code. Yeah, he's sweating folks!

Also

Some major PC vendors tired of having to help poor souls running Windows PC's infected with trojans, spyware and viruses are lobbying Steve Jobs to license the Mac OS for Intel/AMD systems.

re: Also

Oh man, I bet Bill Gates don't sleep quite as easy as he used to. He's bound to have sweated a drop or two over that. With the popularity of OS X, that may not be a bad thing - I mean for windows users. I find mac os'es as restrictive as windows, if not moreso, but anything to show the world they have more choices is good.
