Inept at best, IE is the worst browser on the planet
Nope, there are far worse, it's just that people don't know about them. IE is just the worst of the most popular browsers. There is a very big difference.
But this is turning into a browser war discussion. Back to the OP, I think that if MS can survive Windows ME and Windows Vista to do so well with Windows 7, they'll do fine as long as they make Windows 9 top notch.
