Not really Daniel. The case against Microsoft with the EU is very strong 
and I don't expect to see Microsoft to win it.

Acid2 is just a start, a step in the right direction.
There's a long way to go before anyone can say that "Microsoft is a 
browser vendor that ensures proper support for web standards in their 
products".

Where's the support for SVG, XHTML? Is there any commitment to support 
(X)HTML5?

And even if IE8 supports these other standards; when will it be 
released, and will IE8 be available on XP or just Vista? Or will it be 
unbundled from the windows OS altogether?
