IE9 Adventure - Promising but short

Got IE9 pushed onto my machine today and it was pretty cool!  Seems a lot quicker than IE8, as promised but after trying every compatibility option I was unable to get it to work with the TechNet forums.

Uninstalling took just a minute, but it introduced an odd quirk whereby every new tab or window would auto-start the IE Developer Tools in a separate window (annoying!).

The trick was to go into the registry and manually set the 'Pinned' key to 1.  Doing this in the browser itself just wouldn't work.
