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.

I simply can't understand this culture of sticking with outdated and vulnerable software at all costs.

"If it mostly works, why disrupt it?" taken a bit too far? It still seems closer to an ideal situation & easier to correct than if you'd have an upgrade-happy environment...
