Should it die? Yes. But will it die? Probably not since the market share for XP is apparently increasing again.

Software dies with hardware, not the other way around.
So, until the time comes when all the old PCs are upgraded or replaced, Windows XP will keep on living.
This message was sent from my work computer running WinXP.

Windows XP will die a natural death when Microsoft and/or the hardware vendors will make a technological progress so good that it will make everyone swoon in awe and entice them to upgrade.
Remember MS-Dos/Windows 3.1 vs Windows 95? Same thing

alot of companys refuse to upgrade & i don't blame them
Have to say I feel the same way. I have no desire to use Windows XP any more, but I can understand why lots of places still are.

Seeing how I came across a PoS with Windows 9x on there recently, I'll have to go with no. (Though a few registers over, there were a few Win7 PoSes.) That's before you get into those green screen terminals still in use at department stores and even a jewelry store running z/OS or something. The latter actually had a machine which looked straight out of the late 80s or early 90s.
XP still has a useful life as an embedded system. As a workstation client, that's another story.
