Paraphrase of the old anecdote "I am not sure what you are talking about but we should upgrade ..."
- "If you're going to get Windows 7, now's the time to get it because almost all new computers are being shipped with Windows 8 preinstalled."
- "I'd think twice before switching three XP machines to Windows 7 or 8"
- "If you stick with XP, you won't be able to get the updates to patch holes that people find."
- "There's not really any urgency. You still have another year of official support."
