18. I use Windows and always have
I don't want to sound as rude as your post, but here's my 2 cents. If you wish to buy us all Macs, go for it. Until then, butt out. This was a nice favor the OP did for all of us using IE. I ran the script and appreciate the advice. I use Windows for my job and home, it is what I know and know well. Everyone has their own likes and dislikes. I take the risk of having these security breaches, all of us do. No need for the snideness.
