  2. There is virtually no chance that there will ever be an IE9 for XP x64. I
    have no insider knowledge at all on this, but anyone with any knowledge of
    where MS and the IT world is knows that XP x64 is a dead end. It was an
    essential step forward to allow for 64-bit computing on the client side, but
    it has always been a limited product that was viewed as a stopgap.

    BTW, here is a "nice" description:

    http://arstechnica.com/microsoft/ne...id-the-right-thing-in-ditching-xp-for-ie9.ars

    "64-bit XP is a bastard hybrid of Windows XP
    and Windows Server 2003, with the result that
    much 64-bit software that works properly on
    Vista and 7 fails to work properly or at all
    on XP 64"
