Windows XP and iPod: A tale of two birthdays
"This week is remarkable for two 10-year computing anniversaries: that of the Apple iPod and of Microsoft's Windows XP." The Register
There are still a lot of company's that run XP and will continue to do so for a long time. A year or so ago, I did some work for a multi-million pound organisation that still ran Windows 2000 on all the desktops. There was no business case for the change, so they stuck with it. The contract was to implement some legislative changes which meant I upgrade to Windows XP. The existing hardware wouldn't run Windows Vista or 7 and replacing all the PCs was out of the question. Why replace good hardware, reliable hardware just to run a new o/s which will give them no business benefits? I can see XP hanging around for many years yet, despite M$'s efforts to kill it off.
