The Second Browser War
an article from Ben Hammersley

 1:10 am on Jul 23, 2004 (gmt 0)

Ben Hammersley (of recent note for his automatic RSS validation) has written a great article about the current chapter in the browser wars - and the fact that a lot more may be at stake here than browser dominance.

His analysis really helps make sense of many business moves that look odd when seen outside this big picture.

The difference between the two - between Microsoft control or that of open standards bodies - will be the battleground for the next two years, and one that promises fireworks.

By wrenching control of the standards for building [web-based] applications away from Microsoft today, rivals hope they can prevent another near decade of Windows domination. Microsoft, for its part, is not going to go down without a fight.

vkaryl-in-lame-duck-mode: If your office has a broadband connection, you may want to take the opportunity before you leave (if allowed within your security "group") to download the Fedora Core 2 (preferred) or Mandrake 10 iso's and burn 'em to CDs.

You can get 'em free from: [linuxiso.org...]

PS: I dunno about Linspire/Lindows...it's a bit too subscribey for me. :)

Thanks everyone for the stmulating conversation. We're wandering now (we probably hit all the hot spots already) and it's time to call the thread finished.
