I personally think it's pretty stupid for MSFT to do this.  However, if MSFT
wants you to use IE 5+ and you don't want to use IE 5+, then don't go there.
If MSFT starts losing enough customers this way, they'll change.  No one is
forcing you to go to MSN.com (I'm not certain why you would want to, but
that may just be me).
