You're just fanning the flames. This doesn't say WIndows is the most reliable OS. Anyway, looking at the Datapipe website it looks like all of the bells and whistles didn't help the web developers one bit. These are the least capable ASP pages I have ever seen. Let alone the fact that they don't render properly. But that's expected of a hosting provider... they don't want to outsource talent for their corporate website because of all the smart people who work there (an obviosly feel they have better things to do).
