+ - Making a case to ditch IE?

In my company (an international firm with 5000+ users), the rollout of IE7 is being delayed because so many of our "IE-only" internal sites won't even work with the new version. It seems to me that if that much re-coding has to be done anyway, why not change the corporate standard to embrace Firefox, Opera, Safari, and, oh, maybe the W3C guidelines? I am in a position to make the suggestion on a wide-enough scale to have a reasonable chance of success, if I can make a strong enough case. So my question to the Slashdot crowd is this: How do I, with facts and figures, make the strongest case to move away from IE as the default and get our developers to adopt a more open strategy?"
