Wow, seems to be a lot of XP hate going on here. I for one am glad they are still supporting it. I'm on a fixed income and can't afford to upgrade every PC I own to the latest and greatest OS when they come out. It took me a long time to acquire them and I'd like to get the most use out of them as I realistically can. They wouldn't run windows 7 even if I could afford it. You could argue that XP isn't as secure as Vista or windows 7 and thus should be shelved, but keep in mind that a large majority of that 66% will likely keep on trucking with XP patched or not. Do you really want that? I don't. Eventually that old hardware will die and people will have to buy new. New system with new OS. XP will eventually just fad into the sunset, I don't see the need to take it out behind the shed and shoot it though. Just my 2 cents, not meant to offend anybody so if I did my apologies.
