To Microsoft, Windows XP is like a gift that keeps on giving.

Even though Microsoft stopped selling Windows XP in 2010 and completely shut down support updates a little over a year ago, it’s continuing to make money off of it.

It’s because there’s still a huge customer base using Windows XP and they’re willing to dole out millions of dollars for custom security support.

The latest customer to sign a Windows XP support deal is the US Navy.
