Ouch. We all want the IE 6 users to upgrade. Unfortunately, some of the stragglers aren’t Bob’s mum who doesn’t know better. Rather, they are poor buggers at work who aren’t able to upgrade (or fear that they can’t). And there are the pirating folk who fear the Microsoft updater so never upgrade a thing past that XP service pack…..
It is good to see that sites like Digg are looking at how to push forward. If you add up the time spent by Web developers on keeping IE 6 working on the site… well, I am sure it is a few bucks.
Twitter just did their bit too:
It is one thing for us all to do a full court press on this for the dummies that haven’t upgraded yet “hey, what if we could make your computer run twice as fast…. DOWNLOAD A NEW BROWSER” it feels a little different and sadistic to do this to people who shout back “I want too! I have done at home!”
Hmm. Maybe we need a campaign for the Windows Administration Help Group :/
