The End of an Era
It probably "takes one to know one." So thanks to my friend @JimmySky I was alerted to the article in Tech Crunch about the funeral for IE6 that was held last night.
I've often told people that the true measure of a person is told by what people say in eulogy or at your gravesight about you. In the case of IE6, I think that the reviews are at best "mixed," despite the flowers sent by Microsoft.
The card sent with the flowers read: “Thanks for the good times, IE6. See you all @ MIX, where we’ll show a little piece of IE heaven. The Internet Explorer Team @ Microsoft“
A little geeky...well maybe alot geeky to have a funeral for a software program. Then again, they're geeks. Gotta lov'em though :)
