It has long been thought that Windows XP users must be stick in the mud old bags who only stick with an eight-year-old operating system because they fear change. But what if most of them are smart people? People who continue to use Windows XP because it still does what they need it to do are closer to reality, and they’ll even upgrade to a new version of Windows when they’re finally impressed and confident that it can meet their needs.
But why are so many people actually still using Windows XP? According to polls, the foremost reason is simply that they’re comfortable with it. Following that, the obvious reason: They don’t see anything in Windows Vista that makes upgrading worthwhile.
When asked what they think, Windows 7 users are impressed. In fact, a landslide seventy percent say their reaction is somewhat or very positive–a dramatically better response than that given to Windows Vista by the respondents who have used that OS. Courtesy of technologizer.com
