That may be a bitter pill for them to swallow, but at least their users will be safer - or at least as safe as you can be on a system that relies too heavily on remote procedure calls. - dcparris

It is perhaps no surprise that Minnesota, a blue state like Massachusetts and heir to the political traditions of the Prairie Populists, should be the next state to host a bill to require "open data formats."

I had a comment on the blog entry on waiting for official IE patches or not. The comment asked this: why don't people just switch to Firefox?
