We still have a long way to go!
Here's a quote I just came across (appropos Windows 8) that makes me grind my teeth:
"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?"
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. :shock:
