MS Pulls Out Of Enemy Territory

Microsoft has given up the war on communism, abandoning the future development of Internet Explorer for the Macintosh.

Microsoft says it will no longer develop versions of its popular Web-browsing software for Apple Computer’s Macintosh system, saying Apple’s own browsing software is a logical choice for Mac users.

Except for two minor upgrades, Microsoft’s Internet Explorer 5 is the last version it will develop for the Mac, said Jessica Sommers, product manager for the software company’s Macintosh Business Unit.

Internet Explorer already has more than 90 percent of the market, he said, and Microsoft doesn’t need the added exposure to Mac users, who constitute less than 5 percent of computer users.

Macs are great though, really. 5% of computer users can’t be wrong!
