In a similiar thread on another list, Marcus Ranum had this quotable:

As Sun Tzu said, "when you are dealing with motherf*ckers
who make endless excuses - cut the first one's head off,
and the excuses will suddenly stop."

I'd speculate for several reasons.  I've actually heard it said in my
organization that people don't want to use Firefox, because certain
sites don't display properly or at all with it.  Even after being told
there is an extension to view a page in IE, they still use that argument...

Beautiful...how many more fun ones like these until people start to
migrate away from IE.....

If the stuff in the past hasn't already urged them to migrate, why should
a small thing like being able to beat the popup blocker make them move?

I'd put a smiley on that, but it's a serious question - you need to understand
why they haven't *already* moved before you can even think about getting them
to migrate.

OK, so you're a Ph.D.  Just don't touch anything.
