Nobody should be using IE6.

Everybody should upgrade to IE7.
Hell, it's been out for how long now?

you can't use IE7 if you're on win2000, which quite a few people still are.

But you still can use something else, such as Opera, Chrome or Firefox

I don't understand why this even matters. People will probably use whatever they want to (and they should, it's none of our business, even for designers (the best you do is make it available to the widest support your client wants, that's it.))

Then you should get a copy of firefox... or just UPGRADE YOUR FUCKING OPERATING SYSTEM.

I don't have much patience with procrastinators who refuse to upgrade to digital tv, upgrade their software, etc etc. Just pull the plug on them. Too bad if your shit stops working, it's not like you didn't have time to upgrade.

As long as:

Whoever makes the standards states that this is going to change by this date, or the percentage of people who use this technology drops below a certain number, then it should be fine to quit supporting it, IMO. And that's pretty much what we're doing with IE6... it just takes time =S.

Fuck the time, give me the money and I will upgrade to whatever the fuck you want me to.

Not that I use IE6 or anything. I try to stay as relevant as my budget and ease of use would allow.

Heh desktop Linux and Windows 2000 have almost identical market share, about 4% each.

Good thing our company does not have any sites in Norway. The software we are dealing with uses IE6 DLL files for credit card transmission, and won't work with IE7, so we are kind of forced not to upgrade
