The alternatives are far too numerous for guru training. There are
specific newsgroups for that purpose.
However, as an example, when we discuss operating systems and their
dubious integration with the browser, we may know rationally that
they are separate products (barring competition breaking code changes),
but it is important for someone to be able to point out the relationship
To belabor the point, it is helpful to know how the alternative OS/browser
interchangability factors into the picture. MS, in this example,
claims they are one and the same product, so rebuttal must include
proof of dissenting claims. It is the tech person that is better able
to explain the relationship, hopefully in the venacular.
Thank you for clarifying what might have been a misunderstanding of
my intended message by some of the readers.
