We still have a long way to go!
"Hell, I am still running Windows XP," says Colin Gillis, a tech analyst with BGC Financial. "It will be a migration just like every other Windows launch but it will happen because there isn't any other choice. What are you going to run? Linux?""I'm just a little old lady; don't try to dazzle me with jargon!"

regarding Windows releases...
I actually kind of like WinXP when compared to other versions of Windows, so it's hard for me to blame anyone for wanting to stick with it. My Win7 box at work crashes at least once pretty much every day. The two WinXP boxes at the same office hardly ever crash.oz

The fact that this "Colin Gillis" scoffs at not only the later releases of Windows but the entire Linux world, demonstrates nothing but his ignorance and lack of knowledge on the subject matter. The sort of blogger i choose to ignore entirely because they blatantly have no clue what they are on about, except expressing what their perceived difficulties are in learning what they clearly don't understand.
Has he even used Linux or Windows 8 or is it just an assumption based of what he has read and heard. And iam talking about Linux recently not like 10 years ago or even 3 years ago?

I never actually used XP because I took a violent dislike to its cartoonish desktop.
anyway, that's enough about Windows for me...bleah.
