Consider this, XP is 7 years old and according to my records only doing
twice as well as Linux, which is doing better than Vista.
Even Microsoft would love XP to go away, lol.

You keep saying 1% of the desktop share, but I see it at 20.5%. Do you
have a web-server, if so what are your stats ?
In any event, the desktop is only *one* area. Linux owns the embedded
market these days, and that means netbooks, phones, routers, wifi
and even motherboards etc.
This is a market Microsoft would love to own, but it's beyond their reach.

If we wish to reduce our ignorance, there are people we will
indeed listen to. Trolls are not among those people, as trolls, more or
