Ian Campbell is to ROI what Roger Ebert is to movies: He knows his stuff and usually gets it right. Campbell, founder of Nucleus Research (I worked there for a short stint), also likes to ruffle a few feathers. His latest salvo -- that moving to Microsoft's latest browser will cost you money.

Campbell's logic goes this way: IE7 isn't worth using, and once you find that out, it can take hours of your precious time to get it off and put IE6 back on.
