I'm holding off for a while

I usually wait 6 to 12 months on this kind of things. The early bird may get the worm, but they also get the bugs! Grin Besides I haven't seen anything in IE10 that interests me.

Make Sure To Check Out The Platform Update From March
by Grif Thomas Forum moderator / March 25, 2013 3:35 AM PDT

Windows Updates released an optional Platform Update for Windows 7 which is a supposed "prerequisite" for Internet Explorer 10.. There are a few Dell laptops on the "incompatible" list and you can check that out in the link below. At the same time, performing a search on Google regarding this update has shown a few problems for folks which have AMD/Intel combination chipsets on their mobile computers.. If you're using Automatic Updates and you've already got the March updates, you might check to see if the Platform Update was installed automatically on your computer.. If it was, and you're having no issues, then good.. Installing IE10 shouldn't be a problem, but be sure to read the article below first.:

http://support.microsoft.com/kb/2670838

That said, I've been performing a few IE10 test installations on desktops and some laptops.. In each of the cases, I've made sure to updated the video and audio drivers before installing the Platform Update and then IE10.. So far, so good here, but I see very few differences between IE9 and IE10 on Windows 7 computers.. Still, because Microsoft tends to include better security in each of the IE versions, we're going to moving that way, although slowly.

Hope this helps.

I don't use IE often enough to worry about it.
