I Guess You Can Remove One Item From Your Compatibility Testing Matrix

WebTV, now MSNTV, is going away, and not just in a press release:

Microsoft said that its MSN TV service will be closing down at the end of September, in a post on its Web site and in an email to users.

It’s not that anyone was testing compatibility of Web sites any more for it, but its users were still calling the help desks of consumer products companies whose Web sites did not support their preferred browsing method.

But before you cheer too loudly, consider how many of these people will be upgrading to recycled and donated PCs running Windows Me and IE 6. The answer will be…. more than you’d like to think.
