Today I got a notification from you know who
, reminding me that we're now past the eight month mark in this contest and that it was ten months ago that Microsoft tried to kill off XP.
In recent news, as of November 2014 XP was only being spotted on 13% of desktop PCs connected to the internet, but in December that number jumped to 18.26%. This last month there was a small increase to 18.93%. That's more than Vista, 8, and 8.1 combined!
For the record, I still haven't used the POS hack to receive extended updates because Microsoft said that it would be risky to do so
Congratulations to all who have made it this far!
"Play the man, Master Ridley!"
This is to be a high-stakes, high-tech game of chicken that will be played out in real time over The Internet. The only requirement is that you must still be running Windows XP online as your primary Operating System. To play, just go about your business as usual. It's as simple as that.
Get in the game! Make a post now to secure your spot as a participant. Post back when you're ready to concede defeat and stop using Windows XP online. Who will be the last one standing?
As the first entrant, you can count me in on this contest as of right... now
