IE 7 comes a-knocking--eventually

CNET News.com: "Microsoft is telling people that Internet Explorer 7 is a 'high priority' update, but the company is taking longer than some expected to push the new Web browser out.
The software maker said it doesn't plan to push the browser update out alongside the security patches slated for Tuesday. Instead, the browser update is being trickled out to hundreds of millions of users over a three-month period.
Everyone who uses an English language version of Windows XP with Service Pack 2 and Automatic Updates enabled should receive a notice to upgrade to IE 7 by the end of January, said Gary Schare, Microsoft's director of IE product management. That notice will pop up on people's screens, tagging the new browser as a high-priority download. "
