Yes -- MS wants you to upgrade from XP! Please, please, they are begging you to let go of XP!!

I'm reminded of the Stride gum commercials where they say the flavor lasts so long that people won't stop chewing one piece. So they find ways to get these folks to relinquish the gum they are chewing -- being rammed by a goat, or squeezed by a wrestler, and so on. This is how I picture MS trying to get people to relinquish their hold on XP. :D

ScottW, that is a funny way of looking at it - LOL. But eventually, the XP crowd will choke on their own devices since they have to stay on their old gear with no drivers being available for the new systems. And as the new technologies are rolling out (the likes of USB3), that will be sour grapes.
