No. The difference is really small, it won't effect the program overall.

Do you really think msn explorer is better than firefox???? You must be a bit strange in the head to think that, or you've been sucked in with all the colourful gradients microsoft have used to make a bad product look good. Plus who wants a pile of links down the side clogging up your precious screen space. As someone earlier said "If it ain't any good, at least make it look good". Or something along those lines

Well, to put to rest the debate of which one looks better, view the painful Windows Screenie and then the Gentoo Screenie!

........WIndowsXP..... Yuksville.


Gentoo, God of Operating Systems

That Gentoo Installation is obviously not new It has MSN in the Corner and Firefox and Thunderbird installed. They certainly wouldn't bundle anything using the abbreviation MSN, even if they did bundle Mozilla.

I totally disagree. Emulation is incredibly good at some games, like N64 games such as marioKart. Reason being: the graphics are MUCH improved, because of the new technology that has come out since '96. In most emulators, you can increase shading, DDraw, smoothing, etc.
