1.4.0 is not that far away.

XP is 2 versions behind, and 9+ years old (from release, not
development). It is as insecure as an open door.

I didn't say our release would not be compatible with XP (I'm 99% sure
it will be), however we will not be testing on XP.

I doubt "an awful" lot is really that many these days.. Windows 7 is
*miles* ahead of XP and Vista in so many ways.
