On the general pubic audience site I monitor, about half of the IE  
users are on IE6 (about 35% of our total audience), and accessing  
during work hours. I don't see any mad rush to IE8 anytime soon. It  
will be years before the share of IE6 users (or IE8+ operating in some  
sort of IE6 mode) dwindles to insignificance.
