But they ARE a security risk, our AV (vipre) is ceasing support for windows XP, so we really don't have a choice, besides I was presently surprised when I pushed out a windows 8 image to the wrong box and it ran fine (dell deminision 2400s and a really old optiplex)

Just because MS won't support XP any more doesn't mean those machines are

anything with our lab computers until Summer because they are too old to
run Windows 8 but we cannot do without them.
