Even though they keep supporting Internet Explorer 6, they’re not going to support XP?
Microsoft had stated the reason for continuing support for IE6 was that it came with Windows XP and so they had to keep supporting it. Now it turns out that they’re not supporting XP either. Not exactly their road map, but oh well.
XP is thus fully broken, with a security hole in the TCP/IP implementation.
You’re doing well, MS – it took you long enough to fix the hole for Vista et al as well!
