    Re: (why) Show you one working name ? ? ?
    by Anonymous on Saturday September 01 2001, @12:58PM (#2115)
    The general namespaces can be accessed and resolved by 88% or over 360 million users -- they were obviously talking about the TYPE of names, not specific ones. These recent specific domains XTNS announced do not go live quite yet and they have made that clear from day-one. More simple that you are seeking to make it. Given both .biz and .info went through the same phases (over a much longer time frame I'd add!) I fail to see why you are so down on XTNS that between announcement (for .biz think sometime last year) and start of pre-ordering (biz:think recently) to activation (biz:think .. well you get the idea) when the industry norm, so far as we have one is to be far slower than XTNS are being. Or are you seeking to unfairly compare them to an entity that just had to start distributing a plug-in? If so, when do you think they may reach 360,000,000 users? Soon?

    The August 15, 2001 press release I mentioned up the thread also states:
    ...the XTNS's system already built into the Microsoft IE Browser is today already operational in hundreds of millions of PCs worldwide.
    That is an unequivocable claim that it worked two weeks ago. It didn't work then. It doesn't work now. Your repeated prevarications are serving only to convince me that XTNS is an outright scam. Feel free to sue me for saying so. -g
