And you think everyone has the money to upgrade their PC every 3 years?

All I have to say is that there are a lot of low cost computer's and laptops which makes entry into general computing relatively low cost. Not all people upgrade, not all people need to upgrade. Most people can afford to upgrade.
Windows XP was released in 2001. 9 years is old... Microsoft have to the pull the plug some time. Its not like XP are short on browser options. IE8, Firefox, Chrome, Safari, Opera etc..
I have stopped using IE9. Its got a little annoying. The 64 bit edition is slow to load when it is first run and I think it still has a number of bugs leading to tabs crashing and pages not loading properly.
