10 Reasons why Windows XP will be around longer!

I just read 10 reasons why Windows XP will be around longer.  I have to agree.

My favorites:

“Many organizations don’t see the need to upgrade” – That’s for sure because I know for a fact that US Bank still uses Windows 2000 for godsakes. I always make fun of my banker that they are light years behind technology. (and probably why I don’t do all my business there…) A lot of companies simply have no reason to upgrade to a new system if the current one suffices for what they require.

“It’s integrated into Windows 7” – Windows 7 is supports Windows XP programs (sorta), what is the point of upgrading to Windows 7 if I am going to be running mostly XP programs anyways. Upgrade maybe 2-3 years later when there’s complete support for XP programs/drivers. (meaning actual 7 versions)

Let me also add that Windows 7 simply isn’t something I really need.  It’s not going to make my computer run faster, why would I want to slow down my PC so I can run a new operating system?  If I really want to make my computer “feel” new, I will install Linux but no thanks.

    Hmm. Depending on your hardware Windows 7 is possibly going to be a little quicker than XP. I certainly noticed this on my upgraded EeePC901.

    I know that others are reporting performance improvements as well in big numbers.

    I think that Win 7 is offering some real feature imrovements as well. Worth trying out.
