    Time to service the Camel?

    That's the Sopwith Camel...............a WWI biplane fighter aircraft

    British "government" departmental proposals to upgrade from IE6.

    And you guys thought that I was bullshitting when I told you about the amount of obsolete software used over here.

    To save you Googling........... if you are stuck on IE6, you must almost certainly be running Windows 2000

    If it ain't broke, don't fix it.
    I came in to the world with nothing. I still have most of it.

    Nah! I've got it sorted, I will upgrade them to XP Home

    Don't call microsoft for those problems.
    Can you give some examples of the problems, I am intrigued?

    Also:

    1. Doesn't the same apply to XP (Pro of course )?

    2. Is this when you have an extended support contract with MS? I know that Win 2000 is approaching EOL so won't have the regular support, but I thought you could still get extended support if you paid?

    XP has IE6 as standard.

    IE6 was broken from the start

    Indeed! however, I did use the word "stuck", as in: "cannot move from". That would only apply to Windows 2000.

    In XP, the transition to IE7 or IE8 is pretty seamless.

    I dunno.. I still have IE6 on a few of my XP boxes... I never use it

    I do have IE8 on my work laptop though.. Never did like IE7 so I'm probably going to skip that one on my own machines.
