> That's an industry education project in itself.

indeed it is and Microsoft was forced to inform windows users of the choice
of browsers a little while ago

BBC Click reported that one XP user worried that this was the result of
malware installed on his machine.
Often users ignore system messages anyway

there are a few things at play here with these ie dinosaurs

   1. The industry is still quite young and its users are not that
   knowledgeable of choices and whats to be gained
   2. Humans are reluctant to make changes even when the offer is free of
   charge - humans fear change; change requires effort on behalf of the user

'we have dedicated systems that reply on IE6'

surely *rely upon *dinosaur users exist in dinosaur environments - these
systems are created by retro thinking developers who still despite  all the
evidence to contrary think that IE browsers have the jump on other browsers
or feel it more important for the system to be consistently abysmal across
browsers  rather than acceptable in IE6/7 and better in ie8 and vastly
better in everything else.

Ninja squads need to invade the premisses of ie6 users and install something

using ie should be considered a health & safety issue
