Comment: Well at least they have the D2D excuse with XP (Score 1) 438

The could probably backport D2D but a lot of those older XP machines have lousy GPUs anyways. But you make a good point about XP being sold in 2009. I think they should have made a non-D2D version of IE9 for XP. There are a lot of users that only upgrade their browser through Windows update.

It will be more than a version check, they'll make use of the .01% difference. But they could easily do a version check to rem out the Win7 features.

They're trying to encourage OS upgrades since that is where the money is. I'm not saying it is a good strategy, I can understand not wanting to support XP but with Vista they are going to piss a lot of customers off. I doubt it will be worth the negative PR.
