If I install Safari on my XP OS will that mean I can delete IE and Adobe Acrobat?

    I have IE and Acrobat on my new XP that I bought and installed on my mac. Does safari read PDF's already without adobe? If so would that mean I could store a smaller file by having safari in lieu of IE and acrobat?

    you can't really delete IE from windows, as it's actually built into the OS. It's what you're using when you're browsing for files. It's windows explorer...

    The EU version of Windoze has to ship without IE installed thanks to their antitrust case.
