...in order to take market share from FireFox.
I'm not sure how this will take market share from firefox. People using firefox don't use IE6. So, now they will not use IE7.
I suspect most people use firefox for political reasons or because someone told them "it was better". Neither of those change. It might slow the uptake of firefox because to an end consumer there is less benefit in moving, but that's all.
It is exciting that for the first time there will be good CSS & PNG support in maybe 70 - 80% of visitors. Still IE6 will retain a > 10% share so we will still need to hack for some time to come.
