Internet & Networking Every now and then, you get these news item that make you feel like something's wrong. The item doesn't make sense, shouldn't be possible, and yet it is. Despite Microsoft's newfound commitment to web standards, it's still incredibly unnerving to see things like this - the W3C's first HTML5 compliance test, in which Internet Explorer 9 Platform Preview 6 outdoes all other browsers.

I hardly call them Windows XP hold outs given that there are netbooks still being sold today through retail channels that still have Windows XP pre-installed. Until Microsoft/OEM"s do something about this massive backlog of Windows XP machines being sold you're going to see the scourge of Windows XP and Internet Explorer 8 hang around for quite some time.

I would since the majority bought their machines before Vista.

MS should offer a flat $50 upgrade fee.
