IE6-8 will still be supported via jquery 1.x (which will remain feature compatable with 2.x) for the next few years. 2.x is their semi-decrapified version that's smaller/faster for use with newer browsers. Jquery's recommendation is to either stay with 1.x or add a conditional to select which version is delivered based on the browser until you're able to drop legacy IE.
Don't feel bad; you're in good company. Maunder appeared to be confused[^] as well and needed schooled[^] in what is actually going on.
Did you ever see history portrayed as an old man with a wise brow and pulseless heart, waging all things in the balance of reason?
Is not rather the genius of history like an eternal, imploring maiden, full of fire, with a burning heart and flaming soul, humanly warm and humanly beautiful?
Training a telescope on one’s own belly button will only reveal lint. You like that? You go right on staring at it. I prefer looking at galaxies.

Yes I do...
I like polls.
They have multiple problems, and shouldn't play a big role on a decision but they should be part of it.
CP polls tend to be very M$ oriented, it's usually very easy to predict how a CP poll will end but sometimes I get surprised.
Also, better than the poll itself is usually the comments.
Usually on every poll you get at least someone sharing a bit of knowledge about something related to that.
It's knowledge, for sure not rocket science, but knowledge, and if this global network thing have something that really worths is for the knowledge sharing... (sorry Facebook, gossip is not really worthy )
Specifically about this one, there's nothing good to take out of this.
I'm sure many (if not all) that voted for 2.0 don't actually control that decision. Customers and projects decide this... So even if you're really willing to drop old browsers compatibility but your users use IE8 what would you do?
I think for my own personal development and on my side projects I will be dropping IE 6, 7, 8.
Honestly though I was already much in the process of dropping support for them. I was finding too my issues with supporting them in the same manner I would other browsers and more recent versions of IE.
