With the recent release of Windows XP SP3, many home users might have begun the upgrade process. However, I'm betting that a majority of IT shops are holding off and doing some testing. I came across this interesting bit of info and thought it might help some people make the upgrade decision.
From the MSDN blog of Jane Maliouta:
"If you are currently running IE7 on XPSP2, Windows Update will offer you XPSP3 as a high priority update. If you choose to install XPSP3, Internet Explorer 7 will remain on your system after the install is complete. Your preferences will be retained. However, you will no longer be able to uninstall IE7. If you go to Control Panel->Add/Remove Programs, the Remove option will be grayed out."
The rest of the story can be found here. Basically this is stating that IE7 is locked down into SP3 with no option for uninstalling it. This might be great news for some...
