At some point people just get "stuck" in time and that's it for them and technology. It'll likely happen to every one of us at some point as well. But things gotta move forward. I sure wouldn't want to be still using Dos 3.0 and playing games on my 4 color 320x240 CGA card :P
You think that's bad, there are lots of people (maybe even a few here) that still use classic mode on Windows 7! (No offense to those people BTW, but seriously...)
It is pretty incredible that the same people who flamed XP for years are now clinging to it with a death-grip. Same as the (rare) people who use iOS 2.x, the PlayStation 1, VHS, and dial-up Internet. I even heard a story about someone that hated CDs. To him, it wasn't music without the popping/crackling/static of a record. That's perhaps the best explanation of the mentality.
Anyway, it should be noted that most of us probably know someone (I know at least one) that was a die-hard XP user, right up until the day Windows 7 came out. Then they got a new computer for one reason or another, and fell in love.
