Windows XP is losing popularity

I used Statcounter to report on the mix of desktop operating systems seen worldwide by websites with Statcounter. In two years, the percentage of Windows XP users has declined from over 40% of website visitors to a little over 20%, while Windows 7 use has grown to over 50%.

Many small businesses remain XP users. Aside from Microsoft ceasing to support (i.e., patch security holes) XP in April 2014, most businesses could continue to use Windows XP, but this will make them vulnerable to new virus exploits.
