The number one justification i get for Internet Explorer-only support is that 90% of the population uses it.
Let's assume that to be true (even though only 52% of this blog's readers use IE5 or 6). This argument rests on two assumptions:
1) An individual uses IE (and ONLY IE) on all computers that they use.
2) The only browser that matters is the individual's browser.
