Does anyone plan on dropping XP?

I would not be so sure, after all small business run web servers and if those servers run on XP it could cause severe damage.
My biggest worry is with state funded facilities that use XP as a server and primary desktop, such places are a hackers paradise getting things like medical records and social security.
XP 64bit is made from server 2003 and unlike XP 32bit is not a true desktop machine... this fact does make it handy for working on files stored on a server that is behind a firewall. I agree that many such places are "a hackers paradise" as you put it but that has little to do with XP and is more because the people running them don't understand their own systems.
