So do I. I am fully capable of keeping those machines secure online, something which M$ cannot do.

As I noted upstream, XP is useless for MS-DOS programs that need access to the UART's registers, and that is something that I sometimes need for work. Some of us have to deal with decades-old hardware that still does what it was intended to do, is still maintainable, and that would be very expensive for a client to replace.
