And don't forget that if the ISPs throttle torrent file transfers, you can always point out that perfectly legitimate torrents such as Linux ISOs are being blocked. That's how I got Airtel to remove torrent throttling from my connection.

Going a step further, the advertising on the product itself says "compliant with other browsers. Some loss of user experience may occur" - you know what that means? It means that if you use a browser other than IE to try to access this product, nothing works.

I work on Sharepoint. I consider IE a bug and user FF as my dev browser. And atleast 70% of the stuff works. What doesn't work is integration with MS Office.
