Note Internet Explorer 10 is included in Windows 8. It is not available for Windows 7 or earlier versions.

it just said its not available it doesnt so it wont be available, there is a big difference there

It doesn't say anywhere that it won't be available on 7, that link is announcing the availability for IE10 on Windows 8.

It was officially stated that Windows 7 would get IE10, if it doesn't, you'll hear something official, not a random KB article on the corner of the Internet.

Hardy a random KB on the corner of the internet, this is a Microsoft KB article and it states "Note Internet Explorer 10 is included in Windows 8. It is not available for Windows 7 or earlier versions."

Now I suspect this is just a typo and it should have said not available for 7 yet but as we know it's not coming to XP this sentence does suggest never.

I really wish people took some more time to read things through before hitting the "post" button.

I am not sure why you think a Microsoft KB article dated 16th August 2012 which states that IE10 isn't coming to Win 7 isn't newsworthy. Yes it's probably an error but the OP was correct to flag it up.

First time I triggered a Neowin article. :)
Sorry if the topic is misleading. Just wanted to forward the kb article.

Internet Explorer 10 is available for Windows 8 and Windows Server 2012, and is expected to be released for Windows 7 and Windows Server 2008 R2.

Also for you: Read before hitting "post". The OP claims that Internet Explorer 10 won't be released for Windows 7 based on Microsoft's KB article, while in fact said article says no such thing.

"Internet Explorer 10 is included in Windows 8. It is not available for Windows 7 or earlier versions"

Then please explain what the above does mean.

Right now Internet Explorer 10 isn't available for Windows 7. Nowhere does the the article state it won't be released at all.
