News.com(.com) has a very odd report - Microsoft is officially going to ship the new version of IE before Longhorn launches.

In announcing the plan, Gates acknowledged something that many outside the company had been arguing for some time--that the browser itself has become a security risk.

"Browsing is definitely a point of vulnerability," Gates said.

The new browser version will work on machines running on Windows XP Service Pack 2, a security-focused update to the operating system that the company launched last summer, Gates said.
Wow. Something I never expected them to admit, and something I never expected them to do, in the space of one story.
