Internet Explorer Let's continue the browser talk for a while. Let's move from the pinnacle of browsing, all the way down to the very drainage pit: Internet Explorer 6. To me, Internet Explorer 6 is that annoying zombie that just won't die that chops off 80 of your health in a grueling midnight Left 4 Dead expert session. Microsoft may not say so outright, but they seem to be implying they agree with me.

Microsoft is going to support it until the end of Extended Support for Windows Server 2003 R2 (http://support.microsoft.com/lifecycle/?p1=10394), which is the last OS that shipped with it.


Actually corporate users will be served by xp vms in the long run. Windows 7 ultimate will get one of those. Fortunately this is painful enough that IE6 will get a reputation as being slow as hell to start and to use in the long run and users will migrate away even more privately.
So it is a win win situation. Corporations can use their ie6 stuff even when migrating to Windows 7 but no one outside of the corporate context wants to use it that way.
