The only issue it has on this site is that there is a "flash" for a couple of seconds on netbooks, during which the image of me at the top is a solid color instead of the picture. This isn't an issue on mainstream computers, just slower netbooks.
Webkit (Safari and Chrome): 31.2%
IE: 18.9% (IE6 2.47% IE7 3.43% IE8 8.99% IE9 4.24%)
(The numbers add up to 97%; the other 3% are mainly robots crawling the site and what not.)
With the css3pie update, only 6% of users are getting a degraded version of the web site; everyone else is getting the current design. This minority is getting a web site with a perfectly usable (and even attractive for the 3.5% or so using IE7), albeit degraded design.
The netbook itself isn't going anywhere; ASUS still plans on releasing the 1025C and 1025CE netbooks which will use Intel's next-generation Atom CPUs, albeit not until next year.
Personally, I think Dell is making a mistake leaving the low-end netbook market, just as they made a mistake giving up on the Adamo line of ultrathin notebooks before they had a chance to catch on. If Dell had not given up on the Adamo, they would now have a head-start with the current "ultrabook" trend.
