Windows The clock is ticking for XP users, with Microsoft ending support with its final security update after 11 years on April 8, 2014. Netmarketshare's desktop browser statistics show 40% of users are still using XP, totalling about 500 million users (versus Windows 7 at 45% and Vista at 6%). Gartner and Forrester analysts predict that 10% to 20% of enterprise PCs will be running XP after April 2014. Options for companies include: speed up XP conversions, sign up for Microsoft's Custom Support Program for after-retirement support, and add a supported browser to XP to replace unsupported IE8.

Who is we? Last I checked, I didn't reply to your comment.

My comment was in response to Lorin being a blowhard over Windows 8 and saying he's migrating a billion PCs or something away from Windows (Right, lol)

Despite all the Metro hate, the countless OSNews smear articles, the grandstanding in the comments over every little detail, there is no evidence to suggest that Windows 8 is a commercial failure anywhere NEAR the scale that some of you are delusional enough to believe is inevitable.
