    anyone know if the mcdst exam has been updated with the latest software e.g do they ask questions on Internet explorer 7 (or 8 ) now instead of internet explorer 6?

    The MCDST concentrates on configuring IE, most of which is done in Internet Options.
    I've been using IE8 for studying and I haven't noticed any huge differences between the book and IE8.

    yep as said.

    XP will be around for years and will still need people who can use and support even after MS stop supporting it. Not every company in the world has the budget to update its OS every time MS do and that goes for IE aswell.

    It costs companies an absolute mint to upgrade their OS, especially if they are a Blue Chip company, so I personally see XP and IE6 sticking around for a long long time.
