@jinx101: regardless those exact numbers, I think you delivered your point very clearly. Because ultimately many people are forced to switch when they couldn't upgrade their IE to enjoy the open web. It wouldn't be a problem if there is no competitor supporting the older OS, but, the reality is, there are competitions. and from the developer perspective, I dislike IE for that reason. So now, my fun web cannot run on XP version of IE? What's the point to support IE when I want to support XP users as well? Might as well support FF and Chrome and call it a day. we all know it is not only a XP issue, eventually Win7 will face the same issue as well. To support IE is like supporting a gamming console, instead of something timeless. And from a web perspective, we want timeless.
