Submission + - When do I stop caring about how bad IE6 is?

patch0 writes: As a web developer I usually have to contend with the issues related to IE6 and the development effort that has to go into fixing its eccentricities. But what I want to know is when can I stop caring about it? IE7 is two years old, IE6 is almost eight years old, and yet it still has a percentage of the market almost as big as FF according to some recent stats I found. Does anyone have any accurate info on the market share IE6 still has? If so, any opinions on the magic number where I can ignore it? 10%? 25% market share? What?

Submission + - Open Source License wins copyright court case (bbc.co.uk)

patch0 writes: "The US federal appeals court overturned a lower court decision involving free software used in model trains that a hobbyist put online. Robert Jacobsen had written and then released code under an Artistic Licence. This meant anyone using that free code had to attribute the author, highlight the original source of the files and explain how the code had been modified. Commercial software developer Matthew Katzer and his company were accused of ignoring the terms of the Artistic Licence when they took his code and used it to develop commercial software products."
