There are an awful lot of "legacy" computers running XP out there...
I doubt that XP users have dropped to less than half of the Microsoft
OS users yet.
But frankly Microsoft hasn't learned from many of their past mistakes why
should anyone expect them to learned from any new ones?
Your comment on XP being a ten year old OS..... learn to count or please keep
your hands away from your keyboard.
XP was intro'ed in 2003, it is 2010, that's SEVEN years or is "seven"
"the new ten" in some bizarre logic that I DO NOT want you to try to explain?
Even windows 2000 is barely "a ten year old OS", because it was introduced
LATE because they are having "issues" with it.
MANY computers out there cannot be upgraded to Win7 and "upgrading" to
Vista is no upgrade at all....
And if you wish to speak disparagingly of people who cannot afford the newest
and fastest computer to run the newest and fastest spying bloatware from MS...?
OR suggest running an "alternative OS" that frankly isn't ready for the average
"computer appliance" market strongly refrain from doing either.
