We won't see another IE6-like situation again. It was created by a lack of foresight, similar to the Y2k bug. Nobody is going to upgrade from IE6 to IE7, they will go to the most current browser and the circumstances that led to the current problem are most likely removed.
Sure we will. You have to keep in mind that many folks don't yet have hardware that's Vista or Win7 compatible -- like this machine I'm on now. Home users on older machines with XP are probably already upgraded to IE8, but I think they're going to have to see a powerful need before investing in new machines.
And the businesses are still in love with XP.
The transition might take a few years.
