Talk, Rumors, X Versus Y On the heels of yesterday's launch of Windows 8's preview, new statistics show that Microsoft's decade-old Windows XP again plummeted in usage share and will be surpassed by Windows 7 in June.

Last week I came across the first Win2K box being used by a customer (Medical sector) that I wasn't in the process of pulling out and replacing the same day. Works quite well, was a very late 2K install, 2003 or so, so the machine isn't brutally slow. No intention of replacing it till it dies.

I have however replaced fully functioning Windows 95 RTM machines (with Win7 machines!) within the last 12 months in the same environment. The most recent setup went from Win95 and 98 workstations off a WXP "server" to Server 2008 and W7 in one go.
