@scottalanmiller that's weird, we do use graceful-fs which should handle that automatically
It's possible in done cases this doesn't apply before an operation is executed. When did you encounter an issue?
are you dropping support? how about the lazy shims

I actually spent an entire day making nodebb IE8 compatible. this day was about 6 months ago though.... waiting for github issue before going out of my way again ;D
In April 2014, Microsoft will be ending support for Windows XP, which means the end of support for the operating system most of Internet Explorer 8 users use.
Also google will drop support for IE8: http://googleappsupdates.blogspot.ch/2012/09/supporting-modern-browsers-internet.html
I am ready and happy to say goodbye IE6, IE7 and now IE8...
They are still releasing virus signature updates for XP up until 2015. This might put people into a false state of security.Even though updates and security patches will be stopped I still think people will carry on using XP for a few more years. Its probably best to still cater to the people using it.
