I won't have any Windows 7 or Xp machines around other than in VMs. But I only keep them around to support legacy systems (Windows CE, some have been in the field for 14 years).

I have some support tools that I cannot predict what machine a customer will be using. As soon as I say "don't support Xp", my boss gives me the look, and then I say "but I'll add it."
