+ - Uk Government Rejects Calls To Upgrade from IE6->

Submitted by pcardno
pcardno (450934) writes "The UK Government has responded to a petition encouraging government departments to move away from IE6 that had over 6,000 signatories. Their response seems to be that a fully patched IE6 is perfectly safe as long as firewalls and malware scanning tools are in place, and that mandating an upgrade away from IE6 will be too expensive. The second part is fair enough in this age of austerity (I'd rather have my taxes spent on schools and hospitals than software upgrade testing at the moment..), but the whole reaction will be a disappointment to the petitioners."
