    A lot of the rise in IE6 usage is directly related to the drop in IE5 usage. I bet a lot of it is people upgrading their operating systems to XP.

    If so, then that's unfortunate, because it means that when Microsoft's next OS rolls around on November 2005 (or whenever), and people can no longer get IE for free, IE 7.0 usage will be directly related to Windows 2005 (or whatever it will be called) sales rather than to any competitive advantages between it and other browsers.
