    of course a site that is promoting IE9 is not going to support IE6, MS would prefer to have a kill switch for IE6, They stopped security updates for IE6 2 months ago and I bet if they could get away with it, they would just stop supporting ( designing around it ) al together.... but if you visit any of their MSDN, download or any of their tech sites they load multiple sytles depending on the browser you visit with. Most Servers before Server2008 had IE6 installed and since they are servers, admins rarely installed IE7 or IE8 on them because the only time the internet was normally accessed from them ( if at all ), was to visit MS sites to download patches and or server updates..

    When they were pushing IE8, they did the same thing... trying to visually enforce the need to update your browser.

    Umm... REALLY? Who are they marketing to, then? IE8, IE7, and yes... even IE6 users. You'd think they'd at least have a redirect.

    There's no reason to use xp anymore. Win 7 is way better.

    When you gotta buy and replace 200-300 PC's at a time... repeat that 10-30 times every time MS changes it's OS ? because a 5000 PC change out is outrageous... a 200-300 PC rollout is much easier to manage and plan.

    Oh.... and some programs still won't run under Windows7 .... I have one program that my liscense fee yearly is over 6 figures, but they don't seem to like windows 7, so I have hundreds of PC's that use this program that I "CANNOT" upgrade to Windows 7, until the software can run on it...
