Welcome Jamie. They are a friendly bunch. Just ask.

As for Microsoft is sounds like implicit acknowledgement that their marketing dept has screwed up big time!

Yeh, they finally realized there's an alternative to Vista - Firefox.

For an amusing if not entirely objective perspective of Microsoft's rationale try this:

Re: IE 7 Update Drops WGA Validation Requirement

Correct me if I am wrong, but doesn't that say that Auto Updates are about to be rolled out in the Far East?

Well, I have installed it.

It seems to work OK.

Damned site less fussy that the last version.

Re: IE 7 Update Drops WGA Validation Requirement

An interesting post from that blog...

####

Due to the wide variety of legacy web apps I have to support we have not made an enterprise-wide move to IE7. In fact I specifically blocked the installation of IE7 in WSUS.

This morning I get to work, and am rather suprised (to put it kindly) to find IE7 on all of our workstations. This was an automated WSUS event that took place despite my specifically DECLINING this update. The PCs are all configured by GPO to only receive updates from WSUS, and in fact are blocked at the firewall level from acessing any Microsoft update sites, so that I can ensure an audit trail for all updates to satisfy our auditors and regulatory body.

Although most of the major issues with IE7 have been resolved, there are still several apps that are not specifically certified for use with IE7 and have not been fully tested.

Can anyone point me to where I can find information on why IE7 would have been pushed out to our PCs despite our best efforts to keep it off? I've spent the vast majority of the day so far holding our user's hands to get them back to their work. I'm not a happy camper.

####

You may not be, but some of us I think will be happy campers soon, if they're pushing it that hard.

Maybe the Feds took Microsoft aside and complained about the number of zombie Windows machines being used as attack bot by criminals and told them if they didn't take steps, Microsoft might be held partially responsible?
