LOL no the reason it is still has these numbers is simple really. Windows XP is still used by many a small business and also exists on a very large amount of old desktops. Desktops last a lot longer in general and usually need much less to repair such as a new power supply or even a new motherboard bios battery and maybe a couple of fans. On top of that it generally costs more to get a new OS than it does either of those parts plus a lot of them in homes are on machines used by someone who can upgrade them or even in a lot of cases built them.
Even more of them are on peoples machines who use them for nothing more than browsing the web anyway which is generally a relatively low operating stress operation as well with broadband as proliferate generally as it has become plus you don't have to learn a new OS and VISTA sucked for quite a bit as well which scared people who are scared of new technology already as well. I use 7 ultimate (which I won) and Professional (which I got for 35 bucks through a student channel when it was brand new) still on my computers at home and an Android phone as well. I do not really like 8+ either at all!!!
