    That would include me. At work we still have a system running on XP, and I am typing this from Pale Moon, running on the classic Windows 8. So I'm staying put.
    Stay on an unsupported OS or take a free upgrade to one that will be supported for years to come - I know what I would do.

    There is no OS out there that is supported for years to come. They all have a end life. 7 will be used in the Enterprise for as long as XP has been.

    Extensively posted on other threads that my box (Two Netburst-style Xeons on an HP xw8200) cannot be upgraded to Windows 8.1. So for x64, I'm stuck on Windows 8. I used to be on Vista (which still has support), but even Windows 8 runs way better.

    On the flip-side, I'm rescued from all of that telemetry crap, and no nag screens telling me to upgrade to Windows 10. Also, there may be a possibility that Server 2012 updates (from the classic build) can be implanted onto Windows 8.

    EDIT !!! - Also when I get a new machine, I can use my Windows 8 Pro license to upgrade to Windows 8.1 Pro.
