This is great news, but I figure it will take a few years for general 
IE6 usage to drop below 1% and a few more years for Government intranets 
to implement IE7.  One of our government clients just installed XP SP2 
last summer.  :P 

Our government intranet application will linger in IE6 :( but hope IS on 
the horizon!

I still say that the best thing Microsoft could do for IE is to scrap it 
and acquire Opera
