As I have already argued, Vibe is only a piece of the puzzle.
I can only urge you to consult with someone deeply involved with
Vibe (e.g. Sonke), as well as someone who uses Vibe and Dub
heavily in production, before forcing a decision. It's clear that
neither of us have enough direct experience with these projects
to make a fully informed decision.
As you know, including IE with Windows was not something
Microsoft got away with scot-free.
