On Windows XP

Microsoft should just rename Windows XP as Windows 9 | Crooks and Liars:

So what is it about Windows XP that causes such fervour, more akin to that for British boy bands or TV shows about dragons and chemistry teachers? And is this devotion deserved? 
The simple reason boils down to the old adage, if it ain't broke, don't fix it. Windows XP still gives many firms all the functionality they need to run their businesses effectively. The OS might not feature a user interface filled with pictures and charms, offer touch-screen functionality or mimic a smartphone or tablet, but most IT managers and CFOs favour return on investment, user-friendliness and ease of management over capabilities for employees to use their work machines to edit videos of their latest family holidays or update Facebook via touchscreens.
