I understand that there are probably quite a few server machines out there with IE 6.0 installed as the primary web browser, but then those machines aren't typically used for web-browsing. Everyone else should be running IE 7 or Firefox 2/3. (No, not Opera, and most definitely not Safari.)

Sadly, I noticed that my friend's dad's computer still had an unpatched IE 6 install, which was being used as a vector for bittorrent malware. Good times.
