I say release without IE6 support and then create a "Legacy Admin UI" extension to add support for IE < 7, WebTV and other fringe user agents.

I'm of the opinion that IE6 is going the way of the dinosaur. Unless your client absolutely needs it, I would avoid bending over backwards for it. IE6 support on the front-end is a different story (alas you may need at least minimal support for it -- still has approximate 25% market share), but I think it's reasonable to require modern browsers for the admin UI.

Seriously though, I think public sites still need to support IE6. But gated admin areas that have a small number of users, I think its fine to declare IE7 the minimum. And, if we're lucky, the rest of the internet will follow suit.

I have a question for all the Radiant users out there...

Would anyone be left out if Radiant failed to support IE 6?

I am working on some UI/CSS improvements for Radiant which require hacks and workarounds to support this browser. It can be done but I'm not sure it's worth it.

IE 8 is already in beta and IE 7 is freely available for all but Windows 2000 -- and that OS is 8 years old (benefits of a public education right there, baby). And Win2k can easily install Firefox, Opera, or Safari so it's not like they're stuck.

Thoughts?

P.S. Please don't waste bandwidth with Microsoft or IE bashing (I'm not interested in why everyone should use <insert your favorite browser here>). I just want to know whether it would be a problem for Radiant admin users to need IE 7+.
