A pet grooming service is located in the base of a former hairdresser (that shut down in early 2015) in Banks, Canberra. I've seen the computer screens, and they oddly use Windows XP Professional in the way that make me feel nostalgic (No wallpaper and old-fashioned login screen turned on). Odd enough since they opened around 2016-2017.

So i'm giving the question to you in tribute of the thread where my first post was: Where have you seen Windows XP lately?

I've recently setup Windows XP on an old Thinkpad. We use that Laptop to program radios at the red cross.

I see labs using machines with XP and older to run specialized equipment. Some have been running 24/7 for over 20 years!

In Russia, in the part of Moscow that I come from, there are still plenty of XP ATMs running, mainly QIWI terminals, but there's also a shop that still runs XP to manage the items, their prices and other stuff.

The buses in Germany use Windows XP for their displays. I only found out because one of those displays was stuck in a reboot loop so you could see "Windows XP Logging off..." "Windows XP Logging on..." and then the desktop with some applications running.

Here in Venezuela is the main OS at our offices (Registries and Notaries), It is still used for two reasons:
1. Hardware, 80% of the Computers are HP/Compaq with P4 and 512MB of RAM with original XP License.
2. The main application they use was written in .NET framework 1, that's why we haven't migrated to Linux.
