From Neowin:
During Microsoft's financial analyst day today in Bellevue, Wash., its Chief Operating Officer Kevin Turner told attendees that Windows XP currently has a market share of about 21 percent worldwide. That's about what StatCounter indicates in its latest numbers, which show that Windows XP's share is at 20.58 percent.

Turner then said that Microsoft's goal is to get that Windows XP OS share down to below 13 percent worldwide. This represents a change compared to just a couple of months ago, and it may show that Microsoft is getting more realistic in terms of getting that number down before the support cutoff date.
