Default Re: So Many XP Users Still

Upgrades are always a minority in computer change.
People change OS when they change computer. Win7 will grow as people renew their computers, but as most people dont need to do that very often (you can keep a computer 5+ years if all you do is web, email and a bit of online video), it will take a long time.
I dont need to drop MS $100 for the privilege of trying their new OS, while my current one fill up all my needs. Same with DX10/11. My GF card supports it, but it would cost me 2 games to enable it (by Vista/7). Why? There is very little improvement in graphic quality from DX9+ and a heavy hit on frame rates.
As the universe is curved, there cannot be a straight answer...
