Will MS still release new updates for IE6 after pushing IE7 via MS Update?

How will this work out? I am guessing IE6 will still be getting updates until SP3 is released which will have IE7 integrated, right?

They'll have to keep updating it until all OSes which support IE6 are out of their support lifetime (in other words, 2kSP4, XPSP2, 2K3SP1)

Don't expect any new features though

Yeah, maybe they will force users to update to IE7. But Ryan's statement seems logical too.
