:>They probably were not referring to the MSIE beta, but rather to the
:>*release* version, still at 2.0 (or 2.1 for Mac, I think... gotta go
:>check out the newest version...).

Actually, no, yesterday when I checked it out it was a direct
comparison between W95 NN 3.0b7 and W95 MSIE 3.0b(X) (X was 5
I believe).

If you heard anything about MS's recent claims that NCC was
posting false information about their server product, I can't
wait until both 3.0s are in final production, so we can see
the sparks really fly.

More's the pity that NCC can keep their browser sinked on
16 different platforms (even though some platforms are
"unsupported") and MS can't even do it on 2.

But then, NCC is supposedly going around suing every small
ISP that ever distributed NN to it's users, and MS is giving
IE away with blessings and dialers for any ISP that signs
up with them.

Has the war started yet?  Yup.
