If you actually watch this, you will realise why they are always behind. Microsoft's Enterprise customers like sticking to a version number so they can test their apps against it and like the stability.

What these devs don't tell you or don't know is that that they release a platform preview every thing 6-8 weeks so they can test more features and possibly get more features in before the cut off.

While it isn't Ideal, Microsoft have their reasons for their release schedule.

Also while IE9's and IE10's JS engines aren't as fast as the competition ... they are a hell of a lot better than IE7 & 8.
