Oh, but that don't fly well since I run Linux. :)

Still, the PNG support issue has *NOTHING* with the format as such, just how
you perceive it in your environment. This does not match my experince and
several of my friends. My point was really that you need to complain on the
right detail. That it does not work well in IE is indeed a valid complaint, but
then I would naturally point out that you can use other things than IE to
remedy that problem. PNG is not an old format, it is new and fresh even if it
does not have the cool algorithms as other even newer formats have.
