I've just read about Bill Gates' announcement at RSA Security conference in San Francisco about new Internet Explorer 7. You can read more details about this news in IE blog. As you can see the main target are Windows XP users, especially those with SP2. What about Windows 200 users? We'll see.
If you want to see how IE 6 (or 5) is doing right now try these stats from W3Schools.com. In Jan. 2005 IE 6+5 had 69.7% market share, and this month (Feb. 2005) is 69.2%. So, 0.5% less users are using IE, moving to other browsers, especially Firefox. In this case (Firefox) the trend is ascending, from last month they have 0.7% increase, reaching 20% of the market this month.
So, it's pretty clear Microsoft has to do something with its browser to get back their customers. Just for fun, see where MS was in Jan. 2004: 84.1%.
I'm very interested about what new IE7 will offer regarding RSS & syndication. Hopefully, we'll find out soon.

This news is quite old now but never it's too late ...
There is a new interesting e-book about RSS marketing called Unleash the Marketing & Publishing Power of RSS published by MarketingStudies.net. If RSS interests you I'm pretty sure you'll find something new in this e-book. It covers many aspects of RSS marketing (of course), but starts with the beginning: what is RSS? what problems solve RSS? and how to use it? It has parts for RSS publishers but also for RSS consumers with practical examples like using client side or web based RSS readers or where to advertise your RSS feed.
This book has also something interesting: many interviews with people behind some of the RSS related websites you are using currently. One of these interviews is with me :)
Read in this e-book what they think about RSS or where RSS will go.
