I saw a lot of Internet Explorer grave memes today. Did Microsoft really stop supporting it? Completely? Even for large corporate clients? No matter the price paid? If so, 🎉

@gergely they're still supporting it for companies/organizations paying for extended support. Were not quite at the "super special enterprise and military extended extended support only" period yet. Not that a support contract ending has ever stopped a company from running a piece of software until it just cannot be made to run anymore.

Well, in that case, we shouldnʼt celebrate. Some (many) front-end devs still have to excrete shitty code so it keeps working.


I consider myself lucky, then, as i hadnʼt had to touch Python2 code for 6 years now.
