Internet Explorer Microsoft has confirmed that IE7 will be released as an optional download later this month. The long-awaited next version of Microsoft's browser software will be pushed out as an automatic update a "few weeks" later, probably as part of Microsoft's regular Patch Tuesday update cycle in either November or December. Firms not ready to install IE7 will be able to temporarily block the update.

Ooops... you mean 5 % for the desktop usage right? And Linux is larger on the server side than Windows (depending on how you define a server), so your numbers are flawed.

But that is however completely OT. Fact is that IE7 is coming, and it has been submitted to OSN and has been posted. And that's all very fine.

It is indeed fine that IE7 is coming, and it just has to be an improvement over IE6.

"SVG is not part of the plan for IE7."

It is just such a pity IE7 is so very far behind in web standards support, though, isn't it?

Well, one can always wonder about the decision.
But with a bit of luck, a plug-in will be available.

It doesn't have to come from Microsoft. My Xvid codec is open source, so we don't need Microsoft to deliver everything (if anything at all).

No. I mean .4% for desktop usage.

And Linux is about 1/3rd the size of Windows in the server space. Unix and Windows are trading places every quarter it seems.

But hey, so far no one has posted any numbers with references that counteract my numbers.

Linux on the desktop is around 5 %. You haven't posted any numbers indicating anything else, while you have posted numbers indicating Linux on the desktop at 5%.
