It'd be particularly funny at my workplace. They're really cheap, so incredibly cheap that you wouldn't believe it. We still use XP on all of our machines except for two, which use certain software packages that require Windows 7 or newer.

The reason is that the owner feels computers are like really old hardware, printing presses or conveyor belts, which need repairs but not upgrades. I used to work with a ten year old machine that took 9 hours to do basic jobs that my i7 could do in about half an hour.

So, yeah. I dream of the malware invasion that is inevitably coming soon to a PC near me. It will be funny.
