Microsoft Saves Windows XP In An Act Of Utter Stupidity - Forbes

That is the frightening proportion still running Windows XP and all of them were left crippled after a dangerous security hole was found in Internet Explorer 6, 7, 8, 9, 10 and 11. Support for XP ended just a few weeks earlier and Microsoft pledged no more patches would come. Now Microsoft has made a radical U-turn to save 25% of PCs and it is one of the bravest but stupidest things the company has done
