Microsoft 'more popular than porn'

According to recent research, pornography is no longer the internet's premier use, and Microsoft sites are much more popular.
A few years ago, internet users were labelled as seedy types who spent all their time surfing the web, and ... basically looking at porn. However, thanks to this man's charms, online sex sites have sunk in the net's league of most popular destinations, all the way down to number 12. Microsoft's army of sites prove to be far more popular, and are the most visited sites on the web.

The research, by net monitors Jupiter MMXI, shows that users have far more important things to do with their time than look at online porn. The reasons for its fall from grace seem to be a growing number of users online, the marketing of the internet as a family tool (see the sickly sweet AOL ads for proof) and the fact that there's just more to do online than laze around looking at perdy pictures of perdy ladies. Microsoft have a huge online userbase, and it grows by the hour.

Yet, sex just won't go away. It's still one of the most searched for terms in search engines, even though some respectable sites don't list dodgy sites, preferring kosher links to sites about the Tweenies, or Britney Spears. Okay, the Tweenies

Me thinks if Microsoft had decent operating systems,people wouldn't need to spend so much time on MS sites looking for fixes and spend more quality time doing "other"research.

Then some type of sites would be #1,instead of #12,or spend more time on REAL quality sites like FF.com.LOL
