I've had some time the last few days to dabble on Win9x and here I am in Opera 10 trying to figure out what they did to cause these interminable freezes. Most recent un-successful fix was killing the built-in spellcheck. So after you replied as above I had to go find out if I spelled it wrong! Its ok! And thanks for the award! But my real award-winning comments are reserved for emails to Opera developers. They would get auto-censored here and banned over there.
Exactly right. And I can't wait til someone gets freezes/pauses on one of these (a picture from Opera website showing some cellphones and other toys they support):
I just had to quote that statement. It is clear and concise and conveys exactly what I am thinking (minus the boiling anger that occurs every few minutes). Well said.
You know one of the weird things about that is the fact that when Coke was about to change (remember that the consumers had plenty of fore-warning), people went out and hoarded the old stuff for personal consumption and because it may become a collector item, it pretty much sold out. Then, the new stuff came and most people had to try it, some again thinking it would be a collector item and probably sold out. Then the Classic comes out in replacement and sells more. It leaves you wondering if the whole thing wasn't a giant success anyway
For a while there I thought Microsoft would employ the same trick with WinXP. They certainly succeeded in getting people to buy it before the cut-off deadline. Their mistake was not re-introducing the cash-cow WinXP (probably as MCE) and offering it for sale in perpetuity. That was a real marketing blunder! Instead, they appear to have bet it all on Windows
P.S. Reminder to all: no spell check on this post! Be kind to me.
