How much longer will Windows XP be used?
dthomas 1 year ago
I just read that Windows 7 just passed XP as the most used Window OS. As we get ready for Windows 8, I have to wonder how much longer can people and companies keep using XP? I mean, it is an OS that has been around for a decade, and it is still the OS used by almost 42% of computers that were online last month. That is just amazing. Will Windows 7 and 8 finally put XP out to pasture, or are we going to continue to see significant use of XP for some time to come?
