Prepare for Automatic Update distribution of IE8

http://blogs.msdn.com/ie/archive/200...on-of-ie8.aspx

"Starting on or about the third week of April, users still running IE6 or IE7 on Windows XP, Windows Vista, Windows Server 2003, or Windows Server 2008 will get will get a notification through Automatic Update about IE8. This rollout will start with a narrow audience and expand over time to the entire user base. On Windows XP and Server 2003, the update will be High-Priority. On Windows Vista and Server 2008 it will be Important."

Re: Prepare for Automatic Update distribution of IE8

Depends whether the "start with a narrow audience and expand over time" takes a few months or a few years, or a few decades.

Re: Prepare for Automatic Update distribution of IE8

should be interesting to see if the bootleg copies of the OS upgrade to IE8...

In any event, MS at least wants to be able to say they pushed for IDN.IDN compliance for x to xx months before fast track....

chinese laptop owners with bootleg OS's that travel overseas will need to upgrade or move to Linux or move to Mozilla / Firefox...


More important all MS netbooks will have IE8 no matter which OS now...
this is the fastest / and still growing PC segment....
$350 etc......keyboard too small for me...but lighter than a MAC air..and 1500 bucks cheaper...


I have not used IE8 very much......I like greasemonkey scripts and firefox command line add ons too much.......


any magic features that people are raving about....???????????

but even better this should embarrass a lot of ASCII naysayers at the
bury the head in the sand/ English is singular and global enough etc......
very cool......

Re: Prepare for Automatic Update distribution of IE8

Maybe they will pull the plug on IE6 in the not too distant future.

I think my new laptop will have vista on it, the question I have is can I just switch to IE8 from the ms download center?

that's a bit of a vague question. Can you define (a) critical mass and (b) which market?

Yeah but let us know when all your buddies in your Japanese Sicko Porn Swap Club get THEIR auto-update. THAT'S when things should start heating up.
