Your title says IE 5/6 is not supported.
As in a finite statement that will make most people(since IE has predominant market share) look elsewhere. You are only hurting yourself since this is a young project.
I've sold OpenBSD based security appliances in the past and clients have been more than happy to use whatever browser they please to access the web GUI.
Pleasing your customer is how you sell your product.
Pushing the visitor around this way is a good way to hurt a new project.

Why not take the higher road here?
You have the opportunity to show you're better than those millions of websites.
That link I posted to the AnyBrowser campaign shows a good example of forward thinking. If you want your clients to think you're above the fold and you produce a unique product (I.E. Not based on petty personal preferences), show that you don't think like millions of other web masters.

Actually you're going on a "prissy trip" as you put it against IE on your own site... Which is much worse.

As I said in my second post, there's nothing wrong with the truth.
It's a matter of how you present it.
You ask for promotions(donations) from your visitos, but you call them insane for using Windows and IE?
People judge products on first impressions ONLY.
Yes, it's a harsh fact, but that's also the truth. And that header makes a terrible first impression.
Ask anyone who's been in marketing for more than a day, and they would tell you insulting the visitor is a good way to lose your customer base.
There may be thousands of other Linux Distros.
If this one website matches a million others, then what makes this unique?
