I would agree with you, if Microsoft would not offend us,
a) the users, that try to visit MS pages with non-MS browsers, ("your browser 
is not standards compliant" - but MS, so is yours?)
b) the vendors of other browsers, (by the same thing stated above)

But since MS behave contrary, Jesse's got me full on his/her side.
