Over pints Pierre Roman, Bruce Cowper and Rick Claus decided they would put together a concise and timely podcast each “Update Tuesday”. The object is to keep it simple by letting you know in plain non technical language what the updates are, what they resolve and why you should care.
As always - if you have suggestions on making it better - please pass on your comments. Mail Rick directly – firstname.lastname@example.org

Internet Explorer Lifecycle policy
Internet Explorer is considered a component of the OS for which it was released. That means that support timelines for IE are inherited from its appropriate OS/SP . Basically, this means that the versions of Internet Explorer that shipped for a specific OS or service pack will be supported with the support lifecycle of that OS or service pack.
As per the policy, we will not end support previous versions of Internet Explorer on supported operating system versions. You can read more about it here.
But what is really needed is for a matrix that includes all IE and OS combos so you can check if you’re in a supported state. Well there is one here.
