I wouldn't say.

It'd be nice, but since IE7 will be again a part of system, it will 
again be sufficent for the common users. My only hope hope is that it 
won't be crap, if it adrheres to standards and implements the 
technologies that can make web designing easier, I'd be pleased.

If you mean taking a look in IE for compatibility, it's OK. But I think 
we weill get rid of the "optimised for" and "IE only" web sites. (Or 
will have more "Optimised for P4, 1024x768, IE7"...)
