For thge 10's of millions of copies of software out there, I would have thought the piracy rate would be even higher. Trying the test for Vista says it would run on both IE 6 & 7. I didn't know that it would run on IE 6. And I'll bet the test Vista is most likely the basic edition and not the preimum edition, huh ?

Hey Frank - you replied to the wrong thread :)

 

Browsers - actually MS could well over-estimate. Some broswers pretend to be IE when visiting websites (Opera used to do that) so they could get past some 'IE only' forms

 

Increase in IE7 use - probably people who actually BELIEVED that is was a 'critical security' issue

 

I notice btw that Konqueror isn't there - Linux users mustn't hit any of the vote-counting websites :huh:
