I think it's more of a ploy for Microsoft to get companies to finally
upgrade all those 95/98 machines to XP.

This is now a year old. but:
http://news.com.com/2100-1016-5189481.html

Basically, it says that after 2 1/2 years, XP is installed at about 62
percent of businesses with a revenue of $50 million or more. Another study
found that 80 percent of companies still have machines running Win95/98.
