XP hangs on, not declinging as fast as predicted

We've even got a chart that says so!

Windows XP's been without support for a month and a day now, but seems not to be falling out of favour any faster than happened when it was supported

We'll be coding for XP and related IE for a few more years...

Interesting, the report measures online usage and doesn't include the commercial and industrial systems still using XP which would need to increase the basic numbers. I don't know that they have an accurate way to measure actual user numbers though.

Agreed, yet how many times do we hear about folks still trying to code for IE6x? I suspect that we'll be coding for XP and IE7/8 for another 8 years... (sigh)
