I believe the market share numbers as I see it first hand, and I believe it's even higher than what they say. Microsoft doesn't like the fact that people think Windows 8 sucks either compared to XP on up to 7. When so many businesses still use it, and people at home, well, that ought to give them a clue, plus the fact of it's poor sales numbers and the poor sales numbers of the phones as well.

Believe me, I stay on top of tech, as I'm still hoping to have a job back in it more than anything else as I'm well acquainted with ALL OS's out there and with most of technology available. I might be poor, I might be 55 and older, but that doesn't stop me from increasing my knowledge or usage of anything. Have a great weekend.

"XP??? Sorry, I don't believe that many people still use it, and there certainly aren't twice as many still using it as those who use Win 8. Most people switched to Vista, Win 7 and now Win 8." Sorry, MOST DID NOT switch to Vista and 7 and now 8. Many downgraded to XP from Vista, even I did but I decided to use both [I use them all when possible, and it's not hard to do with the right computers], then many more have migrated to 7 and it's variants, but 8 is only slightly ahead of Vista. 8 only has about a 6% market share now. It was at 5.1% last year in July. Win 7 dominates now at about 45%, Win XP is 2nd at about 29% then 8, then Vista at about 4.5%. If you don't believe what I'm writing, you can look at some of the information yourself as I'll post the url next. Believe me, XP is going to be used for another year or more by many out there. Even at many companies out there, they're still using XP on as many as 60% of their systems, some don't bother with Vista OR 8 at all.

I just got this from LanguageMan: "Thought you might like to know. Our mutual friend, Dennis, 1cheapgasin from Indianapolis Gas Prices is no longer with us. He passed away yesterday afternoon about 3:30. He had double pneumonia, blood clots, and 2 fungus in his lungs. His wife Jane informed me. Forgive me if I don't write much. He was one of my better friends from here and in life. He was a REAL GOOD guy. I will miss him. Martin"
