At work, we have to basically go against the Patent Office compatibility Matrix. They only list up to XP SP2, IE 6 and Firefox 2 as compatible. And they updated the matrix in 2012.

You mean http://www.uspto.gov...dance/index.jsp ? I'm chuckling because of what's listed including Netscape Navigator (EOL 2008), XP SP2 (EOL 2010), PowerPC Macs (EOS 2006) with no mention of the Intel Macs, and Firefox 2 (EOL 2008).

But, hey, it's your tax dollars at work!

Yeah - about that - The company that my employer is on for my project  is JUST NOW doing the Win7 migration.  And yes, part of it was apps compatibility.
