Why should it? The OS doesn't belong to the US government. It belongs to Microsoft. If they want to make the default browser IE, it's their business. If you don't like it, use Ubuntu. I don't like IE, but even more I don't like the government pretending that they own everything.

While I'm not a huge fan of Macs, they DO have an actual user base. But Amiga? I'll admit, obscure systems can be kind of cool, but in all honesty, they're not relevant enough to warrant these kind of debates. It doesn't mean that there's anything wrong with the OS. It just means that no one really cares.

When study results like this one are published, do you think that they're intentionally misleading the public or that they're simply THAT ignorant of cause and effect relationships. Bad parents let their children eat lots of candy. Bad parents raise children that commit crimes. Bad Parenting = the cause Candy = Effect #1 Crime = Effect #2 Candy is not a cause, it's an effect.
