Had 3 but that one died already and two are left wonder how long those will last . One is over a decade old and the other one is about 7 years old.
Assuming XP users are not hardcore users, I don't see hardware failing. Over the past 18 years of PC usage (OEM and DIY) including OC, I only saw a powersupply failure. thsi could be replaced regardless of OS. the next highest failure rate are HDD (or fans), which also can be repalced regardless of OS.

Only MB failure would cause the need to get a newer OS. but how often does that happen/ (happened to my work PC, but that was a Dell, so these are throwaway devices anyway)
True but most casual users don't just replace parts and they just buy another pc. That's the point I was trying to make but what you said is also true.
