I don't disagree that XP is long in the tooth. No question that is true. For most consumers, Win7 is likely the way to go. In the commercial real however, XP will continue to have a strong following for some time to come. I have a customer who purchased a $150,000 Accounting/ERP package in 2003-ish that will not run on Windows 7 without a full version upgrade which will in itself cost an additional $35,000. Why on earth would they go to Win7 until they absolutely have no choice?
