    I'll assume this means an official Win 7 release is due any day now.

    well some people don't like to ever see IE like me

    for example, when I format my Laptop, the first thing I do is go to control panel, programs and features, windows components, then I uncheck:

    - Media Features (I don't need media center, windows media player, or the DVD Maker because:

    a) I never ever used or liked the idea of media center, I like to launch my files in my fav. player manually

    b) I dont like the windows media player interface, and I use MPC-HC + LAV Filters + madVR Rendered + SVP for the best quality and 60- FPS video playback

    C) I use Nero 12 Platinum for my burning needs

    - Internet Explorer, I use Firefox and Chrome

    - Tablet PC Components (doesn't apply to me so I remove it completely)

    Funniest thing I've read all day.

    Sorry to break it to you kiddo but it has absolutely nothing to do with "people like you".

    Microsoft release a browser blocking patch for every version of IE, it's entirely for system administrators (usually of small networks without WSUS). A new browser can involve months of testing and tweaking before being deployed. Sysadmins CANNOT have a new browser being pushed down via Windows update, it would be a living hell.

    ^This. I'm just glad they're finalizing IE 10. I was worried they'd drop it for 7.
