It appears there are litaney of incompatibility issues to no end!!! Issues
that people are encountering that necessitate manipulation of the registry
to mitigate the problem. This is compelling lot of people that has no
business into the registry?? For me,the inability to access my email after
installation of IE7 was not tolerable. My ISP' conclusion was
incompatibility with their software, and they disapprove of application of
IE7 at this time!!! Why all this incompatibility being forced fed to the
public??? Isn't this a poor or lack of judgement on someones' part??
If the agenda is for gain in market share, you are sending a lot of consumers
in FF2's direction. YOU LOST!! This is PR fiasco for MS?? K.

I couldnt agree more,
Although, i think a lot of the "issues" are more than incompatibility ones,
i just dont think I.E 7 is ready at all, seems rushed out to me, i had
nothing but trouble with it !and judging from 90% of the posts here im not
the only one.
Best stick with I.E 6 and wait and see.

I think the idea is, quick make users less vulnerable to exploitation.
Even if you don't care if your box is recruited into a malevolent botnet,
or know about the possibility, it's seen as a Bad Thing by white hats,
with some reason. A push is in process to make exploits more difficult.

Hanging back from the rush job is sensible if you don't have habits
that expose vulnerable IE6 to wickedness that IE7 is able to frustrate.
