This is not just about support, but also about availability and continuity. The fact that YOU did not have to pay a cent means nothing when compared to companies that licenced millions of copies of XP (>2.000.000 ATMs). and that soon will have to switch to another product for replacing old and/or broken machines. By industry standards, Microsoft is an unreliable player!

It still costs a shitload of money to change platforms for an established product - especially since Win7/8/... are quite different with regards to file structure, user management, security, etc. And by nowmost security holes have been closed in their version of XP. Well, now that they switch to something open, M$ won't be able to pull another XP on them :-)

I think you underestimate the size of Russia. Even if you take out Moscow, St.Petersburg, Volgograd and other major cities, you would still have a functioning economy and militatry, try this with NY, DC Dallas and LA! The Russians learned teir lesson the hard way, starting with Napoleon and up to the Nazis!
