Windows XP is, sadly, still used by some people, though a large
fraction of that use is in embedded systems (like older medical
equipment and old ATMs) rather than on desktops. I don't think anyone
is installing it into new things terribly much if at all, but yes,
there's a certain amount of it out there.

Official end of support from Microsoft happened on April 8, 2014. I
would say that in a few years it will not be of much importance, but
for now there's still a *bit*.
