Scalability?

Microsoft makes me laugh.

Not only do they want to take over the world, but they want to do so before their technology is even in a position to do so effectively. Not that this is a surprise.

Here are two images of my Mozilla window last week. These are the Real Deal, and have not been edited in any way. These serve as all the evidence one needs that NT is still little more than a toy.

(Notice the banner ad here. I fell out of my chair laughing.) CNET: Traffic Buckles
	Microsoft Site

Here's what happened when I followed that banner ad... Too Many Users

Any questions?
