MSIE7 is not offered as an update for Windows?XP running on Pentium?II.  I
dared not check whether it is possible to install it nevertheless.  That
might explain that 20%.

Not really; minor versions usually have better uptake rates, thanks to 
auto-updates, etc (it's far from perfect, but it's nowhere near the 
estimated, if I recall published stats correctly, 20% of people still 
using MSIE6 after a year of MSIE7?) - not to mention, not having a change 
shelved until the next major version of a browser 2-4 years from now, 
means that even with poor uptake, it would be broadly available sooner.
