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.

Hell, I loved Windows Server 2003 as a workstation. It was rock-solid and with some tweaks you could even play games on it. I think, collectively, I used it more than I used XP during the mid 2000s.

Okay, so how else should I represent the middle years of the first decade of the current century then? I really doubt anyone else was confused by what I wrote.
