As long as OEMs still make XP device drivers, we'll be on XP (much to my dismay).

Last time I was involved in PC purchase contract negotiations, pretty much all the OEMs involved had 2012 as the last year they expected to still provide any XP drivers at all and that was only on low-end, long-term compatibility focused models. It's already quite easy to buy hardware that you'll never find XP drivers for.
