Humor BBC News reports "Mark your diaries for 4 March because in Denver the funeral arrangements are well underway for the planned passing that day of Internet Explorer 6". There's a phobia of being buried alive but I think in this case, it's the living that are all too quick to be shoveling the dirt over as IE6 doesn't officially die until 2014 when Microsoft pull the life-support.

It effectively does die on March 31, when Windows 2000, the last OS not to have a newer version. gets its support pulled.

So, yeah, I guess it's more a case of having the funeral early, at a convenient time, so as not to inconvenience yourself when it actually dies. ;)
