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.

There are still a lot of winxp users. Atleast ms should have released ie 9 without acceleration for win xp users.


And encourage XP holdouts? No way.

A lot of software development is held back because of XP users and their dated .net packs. Software companies are hesitant to target newer .net frameworks because so many XP users are still on version 2. In the gaming world the situation is even worse because of DX9.
