Security Risks Comes with XP SP2 Support Ending

It feels a bit alarmist for one researcher to claim that we're doomed now that Windows XP SP2 support is ending this week. But if numbers don't lie, then Softchoice, in its estimation, believes nearly half of the computers they analyzed for their report are still running that version. Whoa! What's stopping these folks from upgrading? Ideas, anyone? And haven't they heard of XP SP3 by now? Send your thoughts to dbarney@redmondmag.com.
