But there are sites that actually do things that work only 
in IE (particularly if they require an ActiveX plugin), or 
only work properly in IE. Heck, my employer has one 
intranet site that staff are required to use (our leave 
request system) that only works in IE for Windows, even 
though 2/3 of the staff use Macs! Oh, and if you want to 
get a printed version of our staff directory, you better 
have a Windows PC with IE and the Crystal Reports 
ActiveX plugin (doesn't work reliably with the Crystal 
Reports Java applet).

I know our programmers could have created these apps 
to work in the other platforms, but they don't have the 
time, and our most experienced programmers doesn't 
see any need for anything except PCs running Windows.
