Internet Explorer Microsoft has "set up and removed" having Windows 7 Service Pack 1 as a prerequisite to running (or, more correctly, "installing") IE9, in the space of just 2 days.

This wasn't about Vista

The requirement originally was that users of Windows 7 would have to install SP1 to get IE9, but it didn't exclude Vista users. Now the SP1 requirement is dropped because many corporate IT departments lag far behind in installing SP's. (My understanding is that 7 SP1 is going to just be a big roll-up release anyway, so there's little risk to it.)

XP still won't be getting IE9. It's Vista or 7 only.
