"At the *time of its release* in Q3 2001, IE6 had groundbreaking support for CSS." From what I read, it was not really groundbreaking, but it did have OK support for CSS1. "Later, as MS released IE 4 and 5, which were also incompatible with Netscape, as well as with IE 3, the situation just got worse." Yea, it was around that time that the Web Standards Project was created. "And while Navigator 4.0 had its flaws, it was the debacle that was Netscape 6 that really did them in." Yea, cancelling the Mariner project (Navigator 5) was a big mistake. FYI, see:

Yep, I read that the 6-series chipsets don't even have PCI built-in, requiring a bridge for that too.
"I upgraded mine to 4GB RAM, which is its theoretical max. That was the other reason I chose the Acer 1410. Most other netbooks are only capable of 2GB RAM." That is because the Acer 1410 is a higher-end netbook with a Core 2 CULV processor. The Atom memory controllers mostly only support 2GB of RAM.
