For some of us, such as myself:
- 12% of my users are visiting from corporate computers still stuck with IE7/IE8.
- Parts of the site are using third party software that doesn't have well written HTML/CSS (VBulletin)
.... requires the use of CSS hacks. Unless I want to rewrite the hundreds of VBulletin templates, that's the reality I'm stuck with. Rewriting the templates is an exercise in futility, because updates of the software requires merging and rewriting them again.
Pages I write from the ground up, or were better written in the first place, that's a whole different ball game where I do not have to resort to hacks.
rainborick, how did you run Windows 7 in 2007, it was not out until 2009? I ran Eudora up until 2010, even on Windows 7 in one of compatibility modes. Gave it up not due to compatibility issues, but rather that while it beat so many others in features, they eventually caught up and Eudora became long in the tooth.
