I used to get repeat calls from some "continuing education" bullshit asking for someone by the name of Sasha by some Indian guy. When I told him I wasn't Sasha, he asked for my name, and I very politely said I don't give out that information. Then they claimed they were from some health organization... Then they claimed they were from M$ and wanted to remote into my "Windows PC" to install their virus scanner because it "was infected, and they were seeing traffic from it". I called that bullshit outright, told the guy I run Linux, and that he was a fscktard scammer. They hung up... Then the next time they called, I acted like I knew him, was too busy to talk, asked for his number, and repeatedly told him I'd call him back in 5 minutes. Man did that piss him off LOL! I'd report them, but they block or disguise their numbers. Now I just don't answer numbers I don't know. If it's important, they will leave a voicemail.

Just a short while ago there was a Slashdot story that IE now had only single-digit market share. Which seems to be in stark contradiction to what is said in this story. Are we now saying those numbers were not really that close to reality, but we went with them anyway?

I think that story is largely overblown. Those statistics are gathered from their site (W3Schools), and their site only. All that really shows is that most users who visit W3Schools don't run IE. And that doesn't surprise me. Why would anyone that deals with web development want to use a browser which has historically not followed standards and caused so much heartache for the web development community to support? This article doesn't surprise me either. I thought the target was obvious.
