While I agree with everything you say, in a school environment, kids (and
staff) will use different computers from day to day, Mozilla's lack of
support for roaming profiles is a killer. Every time you log in, you're
confronted with the "Profile Manager" which knows nothing about you. It's a
mess. In the end, I couldn't get Netscape 7.1 to work in a roaming profile
environment, and so I was forced to roll out IE which -despite its problems
- at least basically works.
