This is highly unlikely. With the hardware requirements of Longhorn many
people will stick to XP/2000. A great deal of these people will switch
to Firefox/Opera/etc. unless IE is updated (feature-wise) eventually.
There will almost certainly be a new version of IE on XP/2000 as well.
Actually, according to some rumors this has already been decided.
Frankly I just don't believe Microsoft would shoot themselves in the
foot with this one. The risk of losing market share is just too great.
