Microsoft Is Killing Off The Internet Explorer Brand (but really?)

It certainly will not be an easy journey for Microsoft to really leave Internet Explorer behind. Especially not as long as it will ship with Windows 10 for enterprise customers. And the next question is about actual support. Given the fact that Microsoft has stated last year it will only provide mainstream support for the most recent browser available on a given platform. So will the message that Internet Explorer lives on further on Windows 10 for enterprise customers be a carrot or actually a stick? Since most enterprise customers are using Internet Explorer for two primary reasons: one being (perceived) security, the other one being (perceived) support, one should scratch its head about that.

That said, I like the subtle subtitle the Verge put under the article:

IE will live on, but only as plumbing for Windows
