Is anyone still running IE6 for a reason?
Just been reading through the good old Microsoft Education Blog and there seems to be quite a hullabaloo about schools still running IE6 web applications and methods that they can use to upgrade to IE8 and still run these older applications.
As such what I was wondering are they actually any schools out there that are having this problem?
Personally our only real internal web apps are our security cameras viewer, a SharePoint site and a WordPress based internal home page so IE8 was no problem at all.

I have voted number 1 as still running it although most of the machines are currently upgrading to IE7. We cannot run IE8 on clients yet due to some problems and we still have IE6 on our Citrix servers due to cartain bespoke applications than run. I am currently upgrading the servers to IE8 though.

I can't even remember the how long ago it was that we had any machines running IE6, it has been that long. We're all Vista/7 now anyway so IE7 is the lowest possible option and we've pretty much been running IE8 since it came out.

We have firefox 3.latest and IE8 on all images, its down to student / staff preference which they use, we support both and any documentation / screenshots etc are always done for both. (theres no option for this so ive not voted)

We're running IE7 and blocking IE8 from installing as it gives us problems with non-mandatory roaming user profiles (winlogon error/bsod with ) which I cannot find a fix for. Any suggestions gratefully received (unless you're suggesting a virus, in which case keep it to yourself).

I went for option 3, although not technically correct. We're all IE7 here. We tried to update to IE8 over summer but ran into difficulties. The reason I chose option 3 though is because we actively want to update to IE8, and hope to do so in October half-term.

Updated to IE8 when it first came out, no problems at all.
Would love to offer firefox but it seams like far too much hassle.

Ditched IE6 years back now, thankfully no apps holding us back. Not the snappiest performer on some machines (512MB of RAM is the norm here, working on this though) but works fine.

My dad still uses IE 6, and Windows 2000, and office '97.
But then he is a reformed OS2 user, so we have to make some allowances.
