Anyway, the systems running MSIE 6 and 7 are almost all NT 5.1. What's the newest MSIE they can support?
On this admittedly atypical site, humans run about: 42% MSIE 22% FF 17% each Chrome and Safari (including mobiles-- this was a rough & dirty test) <1% Opera
But the MSIE usage is pretty meaningless unless you also look at the OS, which here is 74% Windows 23% Mac 1.6% Linux ...and the rest are miscellaneous non-Mac mobiles.
