Micosoft explorer, which is now free for the asking is not being accepted as the passport to the www by the internet providers like PSI etc. MSFT has offered their browser for free, yet the providers are using netscape.

Does this mean that NSCP continues to give it's software away to the internet providers? Any facts or theories to share?
