The essential guide to IT transformation

Time for a touch of that Friday feeling. You know the sort of thing - you write an erudite and well-reasoned piece and then you get blasted by some nutter.

Well, that's the sort of day Thomas C.Greene is having. His recent musings under the headline IE won the browser war because Navigator sucks got short shrift from (name deleted) :

Whats is it with u guys and Netscape ?!?? Lets be honest the reason MS is winning is 'cos it's better. I know its trendy and cool to support Netscape and attack Microsoft like they're some kind of devil-worshipping wankers who're out to take over the planet. Navigator sucks big black cock - everyone knows it including you lot so why don't you get off your fat arses and print the truth for a change instead of banging on about crap failed web Ecommerce sites that none of us have ever heard of or visited anyway and some sad red neck fuckers from Texas who like downloading pictures of kids with no clothes on.

There's no way we would ever insinuate that MS had made a Faustian pact with the devil, however tempting it is to attribute its success to Mephistophelean influence. Nor would we ever speculate on its onanistic habits. Poor old Netscape though, eh? Reduced to doing five-buck tricks down at the docks. For shame.
