I agree. Like someone else said in the javascript fallback thread: “we designers/developers are the ones that need to push innovation, not the users” (not an exact quote btw). If we don’t give users a valid reason to ditch ie6 we will still be on the exact same spot ten years from now as we are right now. It’s frustrating enough to make everything work in ie7 and 8 ;)

not to be rude but how about to spend couple hundred thousand dollars and start an awareness campaign for the 10% freaking people who still use it?

That’s not right enough. If a user browses with IE6 (low online culture), chances that he thinks about upgrading are 0. They won’t say “The website is broken under IE6 , I’ll upgrade” – they think “I’ll call my ISP to see what’s wrong”. Have you read “Don’t make me think” – it points out how different users think about websites from what we imagine.

There’s also a thing, called Informed choice – by not letting the user decide by himself, you’re actually manipulating him, instead of explaining and giving options. It’s like telling a child not to do something, instead of explaining why.

Many of those “IE6 users” by the way in the statistics are actually developers, making tests.

And just for the record, I don’t code for IE6 either anymore, I’m just making a point for others to think about. :)
