The new system on a major "4 letters" Microsoft OEM partner that I work for will work only on IE 6 or 7, and have (third party) developer support only for XP machines. So yes, I could go as far as IE7, but let's be real, all the current systems already works better on IE6.
Having both versions would be great indeed, but I don't think this will ever be an option.
The only problem is that real consumers don't want any kind of linux. And they don't care or know about the 3 programs limitations.
When I sell any PC with starter I just say "and it comes with windows" - one out of 10 (maybe) asks or know anything about versions.
I'm sure in the USA would be diferent, but the first part still tru: who want linux, besides we?
