Considering for instance the vast amount of ATMs around the world still on XP, Microsoft had to give some leeway.

OK. So as you do not use ATM, they are globally thinking unimportant.

OK. So as you do not use ATM, they are globally thinking totally unimportant.

I wouldn't worry about the upgrade because:
1. Computers running XP will likely not run well with Windows 7.
2. Just because support ends doesn't mean your computer will stop working. Just keep your anti-malware up to date.
