The company claims that consumers may avoid upgrading to Windows 8

  Windows XP remains one of the most popular operating systems in the world
Microsoft will stop providing support for Windows XP in April 2014, but many consumers still prefer to stick to the 11-year-old operating system rather than upgrade to a newer software.

Microsoft will stop providing support for Windows XP in April 2014, but many consumers still prefer to stick to the 11-year-old operating system rather than upgrade to a newer software.

That will eventually happen, Microsoft CFO Peter Klein said at the Goldman Sachs technology conference, but instead of switching to Windows 8, most of them will actually pick Windows 7.

Enterprises, on the other hand, are the ones that will go for Windows 8, as the new operating system comes with a great pack of features aimed at this particular consumer sector.

The bad thing for Microsoft is that Windows XP is losing users at a very slow pace, with recent statistics revealing that XP remains the second most popular operating system in the world, with a market share that’s very close to the one of Windows 7.
