    In a new post on the Microsoft Security blog, Tim Rains, the director of its Trustworthy Computing division, says that while he has heard of many businesses that will be upgrading their PCs from Windows XP to Windows 7 or 8, he has also heard from others that they don't plan on upgrading before the support cut off date. He added, "I have even talked to some customers that say they won’t migrate from Windows XP until the hardware it’s running on fails."

    They still don't want to get rid of it. Can you blame them? XP is probably the best os they came out with, and why try to fix something that isn't broken?
