A good amount of users still rock XP

More than 26% of all desktops are currently using Windows XP, an operating system that Microsoft has been trying to put out to pasture.

Windows 7 still holds the lion share at 48.77%, but it is still impressive that XP refuses to go out quietly, even after Microsoft has stopped supporting the OS with regular updates and bug fixes.

Despite being more vulnerable to security threats more now than ever before, XP is still enjoying a broad usage. Windows even mentioned some 7 years that they would begin pulling support for the Operating System, but XP users don’t seem to care.
Now it isn’t all rainbows and butterflies for Microsoft’s baby OS, as XP dropped 1.4% in the span of one year. Windows 8 still lags behind XP with only 11.3% of usage.
Any die-hard XP fans out there who refuse to change their OS?
