Eh? Every business needs to use tactics. It is not by definition a bad
word.

Yes, they have. 3 links in my first post mean they are finally required to
run a campaign as people are not relenting - inertia, cost, preference
whatever may be the reason.

The campaign is not because they care for your business loss if you are on
XP. The campaign obviously is to increase the sales of newer versions.
