Windows has 91.77 % of the market and Mac OS-X has 6.94 % and they seam to me to be patting Mac on the back. Good news about Windows 7 growing very fast.

Windows Vista for me was like a bridge from XP to 7 since there was a drastic difference in XP and Vista which made XP users skeptical on Vista but not that much change on Vista and 7 also the end of support on XP made the migration happen. Just my opinion cuz it happened to me =)

I hope someone still use Windows XP even after extended support ends in 2014.

After 2014, Microsoft strongly advised that you forget Windows XP now and migrate to Windows 7, or even Windows 8.
Then Windows XP users commented about this:

No. I don't want to migrate to Windows 7. I am very happy with Windows XP. No Windows XP = no life.
Then if Windows XP crashes, just buy a new copy of Windows XP again or if there's no Windows XP package I want to purchase, then I just buy an old computer with Windows XP included.
