    Exclamation Internet Explorer 7 To Be XP Only

    Internet Explorer 7 To Be XP Only

    WindozeSux writes "The new Microsoft browser, Internet Explorer 7 will only be available for users of Windows XP. However, due to the fact the that a large amount of Windows users do not own Windows XP, IE7 is expected to boost the amount of Firefox users. From the article: 'Improvements in Firefox, along with IE 7 restrictions, could lead to a dramatic increase in the open-source browser's market share, according to Dotzler.'"

    I don`t know about anybody else, but I don`t use IE - its too full of holes.
    I use Opera - I think its great - allows zooming in on web pages and a lot of other features IE doesn`t have.
    I won`t be installing IE7

    Thank my lucky stars I actually have windows XP.
    I hate it when a computer upgrade is mandatory to run software.

    I use Firefox too, but as I understand it, you have to have IE in order for AutoCAD's help system to work. In fact, I had IE 5 on Windoze 2K, but had to upgrade to IE 6 because one service pack or another broke the help system in AutoCAD.

    So - will this mean future versions of AutoCAD will effectively be XP only?

    They already are "XP only". No tech support is available for any other operating system.
