They are on XP - still accounts for nearly 30% of market share;

Next week could be interesting - many malware writers will be releasing stuff they've been hoarding.

I'm sure we'll see a press announcement from MS and probably Symantec "documenting" the mayhem, along with guidance that they upgrade to our newer products.

Really and truly - THAT's what it's all about isn't it !!!!
Commerce - business - profits...that's all that rules the day nowadays. They just do not want anybody hogging an old XP machne.  Well, sucks to that..when mine conks out I've already decided..and got myself a MacBook which is already giving me loads more pleasure than any Windows ever has.. and I've been using those since the very first one they brought out.
