No support for IE7 on Windows 2000?

I'm sure a lot of people are looking forward to the release of IE7, mainly because of a large number of features that have been lacking from IE, such as the ability to use tabs when browsing instead of having to open a lot of Internet Explorer windows, which of course uses a lot more resources.

All is well if you use XP with service pack 2 or later. What about if you don't have SP2 or use Windows 2000? At the moment, it's not looking good. After reading this post about it, Windows 2000 users may well be left in the dark and forced to upgrade. Maybe it's really another marketing idea. There will be design issues to consider, especially if IE7 will really be such a great application as it being described.

Most people running Windows 2000 on desktop systems could upgrade to XP, but we all know how much trouble it can be to do an upgrade or migration and a lot of the time we put it off unless it is required. I've been looking for an excuse to wipe my Windows 2000 based system and then run XP on it, maybe to get IE7 support I'll have to do just that.
