Windows Microsoft originally said that new owners of Windows 7 who wanted to downgrade to XP would only have until 2011 to do so, but now the company has changed its mind and extended support for the old operating system until 2020.

How about IE9?

They'd bloody better be willing to release IE9 for those old XP systems if they don't want us web developers to riot in the streets. After a three-day slog-fest I'm finally getting a website I'm working on to not look like utter poo in IE6 and IE7.

Although, truth be told, it looked fine in IE8 with little to no hacks. But the web is going to have moved on by 2020, and IE8 won't cut it by then.
