IEBlog: What have you guys been doing since IE6?: "Before I answer this, I want to acknowledge that we have a problem if people are asking this question. Listing what we’ve done or our priorities will help but won’t address the problem. Responding to specific questions with a great product and great documentation (for developers, for IT professionals, for deployment specialists, and for other customers as well), and doing that consistently for as long as we’ve been quiet about IE will help more.
I think the unarticulated question behind "What have you guys been doing?" is "Do you think it's enough?" I want to answer clearly: No, it's not enough. It's a good start, but we need to do more (product) and communicate more (acknowledge that we're listening, post responses, and reflect that feedback in the product). That's why we're working on IE7."
Good counter-FUD measures. See the post for a list of what the IE team has been up to.
