    Windows XP decline stalls as users hold onto aged OS, flaunt 2014 deadline

    W8 sure is an off-putting piece of garbage.......

    ================================================
    A third of all Windows users could still be running XP when Microsoft pulls patch plug in 53 weeks.

    Computerworld - The decline in usage share of Windows XP, which is slated for retirement in 53 weeks, has slowed significantly, hinting that millions of its users will hold onto the operating system much longer than some, including Microsoft, expect.

    Data published monthly by California-based Web analytics company Net Applications indicates that XP's long-running slide has virtually stalled since Jan. 1.

    In the past three months, Windows XP's monthly drop in share has averaged just 0.12 of a percentage point. That's less than a fifth as much as the 12-month average of 0.68 percentage points.
