I don't see how that furthers the discussion or your position.

I've shared my opinion long ago,
http://foolswisdom.com/still-browsehappying/ , and having done that it
isn't a topic I still get excited about.

Matt has shared his thoughts on this topic many times. I particularly
recall one discussion on #wp-hackers where he acknowledged that
http://browsehappy.com/ is grossly out of date, but that history has
shown Microsoft needs their feet continuously held over the fire, and
it sitting there in the footer is a regular reminder for him to make
the time to have it updated. Or maybe I remember wrong ;-)

I would love to see people contribute to an updated version, or
equally continue to share their strong well argumented opinions on
