Do you want to run IE7 and IE6 side by side for testing purposes?

November 22nd 2006 in Uncategorized

Basically, you can’t run IE6 and IE7 on the same partition (although there are people out there publicising various hacks and workarounds that I promise you don’t really work).  MS has heard your pain and is working on a VPC image that will be freely available for download to make it easier to test your sites and applications.

I haven’t had a chance to sit down and ponder the end result of the ruling for spam’s victim-in-the-street but a quick scan of the articles cited above doesn’t reveal anything that jumps out at me as a questionable assessment of effect.
