Reply to "Internet Explorer is 'Officially' Dead"

Microsoft supporting something is pretty meaningless.  I can only think of a few instances where an update actually fixed something - more often than not it has deleterious side effects.  Support is an issue in enterprise environments but companies have to pay big bucks on support agreements - $100K a year for a system I worked on.

Arbitrarily changing the user interface with no recourse is a terrible way to treat customers.  Also, it's pretty lame when a third party can easily add the feature back.  I use Classic Shell and Classic Menu for Office so I can have the user interface I am comfortable with.  Ironically, the changes made do not actually fix the shortcomings of prior versions - they just force users to access the mediocre features in a different way.

Backward compatibility is a noble cause.  Like still being able to use conventional engines with command control systems.  Any excuse that it is difficult is a cop out.
