Reducing IE 6 support

It's well known that IE 6 is causing a lot of grief for Web Developers. Recently, Digg announced they will reduce support for IE 6.

Now, Youtube is also announcing they are reducing IE 6 support. They are actively advising IE 6 users to upgrade to either IE 8, Google Chrome (of course) or Firefox 3.5.

In my opinion, this is an excellent development. End users as well as system admins should be pushed to migrate to more standards-compliant browsers. I realize this will have a significant impact on some companies, especially with IE6-specific intranet sites.
