The Windows Life: Reboot, reuse, recycle

Ryan Weal

December 01, 2007

A Windows day at work. The CSS for one of our sites was broken in IE 6. For those of you who aren't in the know: only in IE 7 has Microsoft finally adopted best practices with the CSS specification.

So after a few short hours I successfully moved one box. All I needed to do was uninstall IE 7, reboot, start all my programs again, then test and play till things looked right before installing IE 7 again. What a waste of time.

All this just so Microsoft could look innocent when they were trying to "prove" IE was integrated with Windows back when they were being sued by the DOJ. I can't believe the US govt bought the story. Sigh.
