    Not sure where you heard that. The overwhelming majority are on Windows 7. Windows 10 is a distant second, and XP is third.
    All you have to do is google. It's not that hard. First result pulls up a article like this.

    Report: 52% of businesses still running Windows XP, despite support ending in 2014

    And before you even bother replying, keep in mind I was quoting the guy who posted this.

    Because the majority of computers in business environments are Windows 7...
    So our discussion is about businesses using it, not the overall global usage.

    Vgchat, at least read the article you refer to.

    some 52% of businesses are still running at least one instance of Windows XP
    Some have to because the XP may be in embedded systems in some highly expensive specialised old instrumentation or process equipment, as it was in some MRI and blood bank management systems equipment in Hospitals.

    The article also says:

    So, while many businesses are still running at least one instance of Windows XP, Windows 7 is far and above the most popular version of Microsoft's OS. Windows 7 also claims the highest penetration rate, at 87%.
    Taken together these statements agree with the posts you seem to disagree with.

    We have two XP workstations (just there because our IT department is lazy - and also off premises), but the rest of the office is far and away Windows 7 Land.
    XP is dying!
