Long Standing Microsoft issue
Authored by: Panjandrum on Dec 04, '01 09:24:47AM

This has actually been a long-standing Microsoft issue, not just a new one under Mac OS X. If you ever used "Peek A Boo" or a similar utility to monitor processor load under older versions of the OS, you will find that certain Microsoft products will do this in the background. IE 4.5 would even do this with no windows open. Hmmmm. Seems odd that they can continually produce products for the Mac that either suck CPU cycles, or just plain suck. Gives us just one more good reason not to use their products.
