Re: I used to care...
You can try a simulation of how it will be when XP loses support.
Imagine installing XP without any service patches, vanilla XP as released in 2001.
Now connect it to the internet, leave it connected for 24hours no patching allowed.
Now login to all your favourite banking websites one at a time.
Still feeling happy?
Most of these people use XP because of Microsoft's continued support for vulnerabilities/security fixes, even if they're not aware of it.
When that support disappears just watch how quickly people find something secure, the smart ones are already moving.
It's akin to the police closing down the station and moving out of the neighbourhood, sure you can still stay in your house but it's going to become more and more lawless outside your door.
This little one's not worth it

IE accessibilty win!
This is my 2nd attempt at posting on this article, still rubbing the crayon off the 1st go
Surely this is an IE accessibility win, more useable by users of all abilities, no need for pocket calculator or Linux lab coat, computing for the real world
Or leave Ronnie's cue out of it and...
.... join the queue.
