Feasibility vs. Compatibility vs. Reality
This is what we call a 'wishful thinking corporate policy' and is typical of all companies that eventually 'GO THE WAY OF THE DODO' because they would rather push THEIR own version of new products that serve corporate intertests onto people, rather than taking people's interest and feedback, to make better products for the people! Either a company takes an absolutist attitude with its consumers, and FAILS out to companies that choose to develop products that people actually WANT. Example, Microsoft being absolute and far too greedy and driving away new business or the opposite approach car companies are cashing in on bringing back their older more popular car lines, like the Mustang. I can also mention that banks are still using Win 95 OS for database management and a likely chance that I would put money on; that hundreds of millions of XP users WON'T SWITCH! There are several reasons, 1 hacked XP is free; 2 XP works well on older AGP system hardware and as the saying goes 'if it ain't broke, don't fix it' and PEOPLE WON'T specially if they can't even afford to look for work FFS; 3 Microsoft wants to eliminate the supply and use of hacked XP because they are greedy, but thanks to savvy Asian/North American piracy markets, that will likely not happen in 3 generations; not even with their GA spyware crap... people turn off auto updates and keep it that way. With the amount of user tweak and support info out there, I think it's VERY FEASIBLE to keep using XP, even after MS stops supporting it. If they don't want to stand by their only decent product, that will be their own undoing.
