Boycott IE 7 (says Windows guru)

If you’ve ever developed web sites or web applications you’re painfully aware of the degree to which IE does not conform to many web standards, either intentionally or because of bugs they’ve neglected to fix. It appears as though IE 7 will continue this rich tradition, based on reviews of the IE 7 beta (which has yet to address some well-known bugs) and based upon statements coming out of Microsoft about the value/role of compliance to some web standards. So, at least one well known Windows advocate is suggesting a boycott in his article:IE 7.0 Technical Changes Leave Web Developers, Users in the Lurch. This also made Slashdot’s front page: Windows Guru Calls For IE7 Boycott.
