Microsoft don't want to sell XP, they want to sell Windows 7. They sell XP because companies can't be bothered to move with the times and update their software even after 10 years, a whole decade.
I bet you are miffed Microsoft aren't releasing a patch to enable IPv6 support in MS-DOS?
We need antivirus solutions because users click "yes" to anything. Other operating systems need antivirus too should they be subject to people installing questionable software.
Speak for yourself by the way - I have Windows machines without antivirus and built in firewall and they never get security breaches.
"They keep churning out operating systems" - what an utterly stupid thing to say, should they have just stopped making anything when they released Windows v1?
Please, at least make logical points not just unsubstantiated and unconstructive reasons why you dislike MS.
