One final note: These kinds of rates do vary wildly from ecosystem to ecosystem. Its apples-to-oranges, or at least free-mobile-to-paid-desktop, but Windows 8 hasnt even reached 14 percent of the market yet. It was released in 2012. And Windows XP, a 13-year-old piece of software, is still installed on almost 24 percent of PCs.

Hello Mr Marvin,
Dont waste your money trying to upgrade your Windows XP PC.
FROM THE EDITORS
Windows identity crisis
Windows has always been the operating system of the people, providing every capability its broad customer base might want. The result is generally messy, but for the most part Microsoft has gotten it right... eventually.
On the surface, Windows 8 and 8.1 seem to follow the same pattern Microsoft has inadvertently fallen into over the years. Windows 98 was a hit. Windows ME added too many moving parts, and Windows XP cleaned them up. Windows 7 restored users faith in the wake of Vista, and then Windows 8 departed from convention with a new touch interface that continues to confuse and frustrate desktop users.
Many are heralding Windows 9 as the savior, but theres no guarantee it will right the ship. The circumstances have fundamentally changed, and Microsoft needs to rethink its philosophy.
Windows 8s Metro makeover wasnt driven by user desire, but by a reaction to the rapidly shifting mobile-first OS market. The One Microsoft strategy, extending the live tile interface across Windows for the desktop, tablet and smartphone, worked in theory, but in reality it didnt go far enough in optimizing the mobile experience while simultaneously alienating desktop-based business users.
Windows 8.1 and its forthcoming Update 1 are Microsofts way of saying sorry, by once again pandering to the criticism of the masses. The update addresses customer feedback by clumping Windows 8 Metro and desk-top versions together with some quick fixes and the option to switch between interfaces. In so doing, however, Microsoft has compromised any sort of unified design while making the experience even more disjointed.
Microsoft needs to make up its mind. Will it stick with the one OS strategy, or let the desktop and mobile versions of Windows stand on their own?
There are too many platforms and too wide a cross-section of users to make every customer happy, so Microsoft should stop trying. Whether Windows 9 aims to create one truly universal user experience or strike a balance between two, Microsoft must pick a direction and stick to its guns.
Trying to bridge two worlds with one OS has made no one happy.

Microsoft is currently offering its Windows XP users $100, but there's a catch.
Those who are eligible for the latest Microsoft deal can only redeem the store credit if they agree to update to a new Windows 8 computer.
This $100 promotion is part of Microsoft's attempt to get the last remaining Windows XP users off of the old operating system and into the hands of Microsoft's latest PCs. Windows XP currently stands as a 13-year-old Microsoft operating system.

The real problem (for Microsoft) is not that Windows XP is three generations old, having been succeeded by Vista, Windows 7 and now Windows 8. It's that despite the company's best efforts to bump it off, XP is still the OS on nearly one-third of all Windows computers. And the refusal of users to abandon it is hurting sales of Windows 8.

No advantage. xp has 8087 support. 32 bits is apparently sufficient.

Windows XP support ends on April 8, 2014. Once that date hits Microsoft will stop providing security and operating system updates. Thats it. No more. Kaput. Finale. The End.
But, Microsoft understands that many some are stuck with Windows XP after the drop-dead date for a number of reasons beyond their control. Most companies are currently embroiled in some phase of migration, with the majority of companies migrating from Windows XP to Windows 7 (not Windows 8). R

Switch from xp to 7 or 8 unwise likely unless highly-specialized DSP numircal computations are requried.

Microsofts Windows 8.1, the do-over operating system that Microsoft hopes will win back its fan base, is finally here.
Early Thursday morning [October 17, 2013], Microsoft published the Windows 8.1 update to the Windows Store within Windows 8, following the OSs release last month to its two IT channels, TechNet and MSDN. There will be no automatic update: Microsoft representatives told PCWorld that consumers must manually visit the Windows Store and download Windows 8.1 themselves.
