    Windows 9 is becoming a very anticipated product, not only for users, but also for those involved in the IT industry who want more Windows XP users to dump the aging OS and move to a newer platform.

    Dell, for example, hopes that Windows XP users will jump ship as soon as possible, and given the fact that such a transition usually required new hardware, the company’s PC sales would obviously experience a boost.

    The people I know who still run XP will not be enticed to spend money on updating their systems until the old computer fails.

    If computers weren't a hobby with me, I'd probably be the same way. My motto is usually, "if it ain't broke, don't fix it".

    My mind set is if it isn't broke then figure out why then break it just to see if it can be repaired. . .something I like doing with an OS (any one of the many that are available). . .

    When I break things they seem to have a nasty habit of staying broken.
