Shining Light on the Windows LIfe-Cycle Process

Understanding the Windows lifecycle policy (for all you IT Pros out there)

OK, so a quick read indicates that MSFT is supporting 6 versions of IE on 8 different versions of Windows. Wow! THat is a bit of a nightmare, even with the deep pockets of MSFT. If you figure in stuff like variations in hardware, net access, other installed software, it just makes support a nightmare on a good day.
