This is a simply ridiculous comment!
Yes, I play WoW but it's my only MMO and I certainly do not want any more.
Look at the games I have purchased recently:
Unreal Tournament 3, World of Goo, Ghost Recon 2, Command & Conquer 3, SlamIt Pinball, Bioshock, Left 4 Dead, Trackmania.
That's a pretty broad spectrum of game styles.
PC owners want the same games as console owners...we're just getting screwed over more and more by the games companies pandering to ADD console-kiddies and FUD piracy bullshit.
The only thing that will stop me from picking up a copy of Resident Evil 5 is that they seem to have removed every puzzle-solving/scary/survival aspect that made the RE games such classics and are now forcing the same bland co-op, horde, tension-lacking nonsense we've seen done so often before...
What we really want is originality and that's something no gamer is getting right now...
This has obviously descended into another slagging match with regards to IE's quality and standards-compliance.
The OP is talking about a drive to upgrade from IE6. Let's talk about that.
The reality is that banks and other blue chips upgrade in cycles. It probably is about time that these organisations upgrade, but:
For the record, my browser of choice continues to be Firefox. I also believe that IE7 is much better than IE6 and that IE8 is better again but nowhere near ready for the banks. It will be another 2-3 years before we see IE6 really disappear...
I'm in the UK and I just don't have an issue with my 25GB(20GB until a few months ago) cap. I've used it all ONCE in 4 years, when I was replacing my computer and had to reinstall everything. It's not that I'm a cautious bandwidth user either.
I play WoW(1.6GB path last week) and Warhammer(10GB beta download). I never worry about my limit and download games, music and video, whenever I wish. I also manage a dedicated server, with website and all the data transfer that involves.
I wonder, what nefarious activities are all you lot up to that demand so much bandwidth? Maybe I should contact the MPAA...
