Are _you_ kidding? XP will reach end-of-life soon, and Microsoft will 
stop releasing patches and such. In fact the official webpage for 
eod-of-life at Microsoft now literally says "Through the launch of 
Windows Vista". Every last person on earth running XP will HAVE to buy 
Vista immediately, because their PC will be fragged within a month.

It's brilliantly evil. Bill Gates must be rolling around in a pool 
filled with money and dead babies laughing with glee. The GooglePool 
(tm) is still under construction.
