It's had it's day, RIP XP.
but at a cost of 9+ million dollars :
"Microsoft Corp., Redmond, Washington, is being awarded a $9,149,000 firm-fixed-price modification to a previously awarded contract (N00039-14-C-0101) for Microsoft Premier Support services and Microsoft Custom Support services for Windows XP, Office 2003, Exchange 2003 and Server 2003. Microsoft Premier Support services and Microsoft Custom Support services are required to provide critical software hotfixes to sustain deployed capabilities. "
At the end of the day it is about "Show me the money!" as support costs a lot.
So if you're still a Windows XP user, would you pay for XP support? Or would you just move on?
