Unfortunately, there are a lot of people in the same group as yourself. It is difficult to find a good job when businesses are performing credit checks, and hiring partially based on the criteria derived from the result. I have been not hired due to a poor credit score, but was hired by a company that doesn't take that information into account when hiring.

Microsoft and the EFF coming together about this issue.

I thought that this was a pretty cut and dried case; i4i created a plugin for Microsoft Word, attempted to sell it to MS, and MS took the code anyway and incorporated it into the Word application.

Is there more to this that I am not seeing?

The fraction is quite large unfortunately. Lots of companies still enforce the use of IE6! All because they heavily rely on 3rd party software (like SAP), which will not be updated.

I am not sure what version of SAP you are running. We run IE 6 and 8 on systems that use SAP, without issue.

It's time to boot, do your boot ROMs know where your disk controllers are?
