Because people either:
1 can't afford to upgrade (usually corporate; testing costs, deployment costs, etc.)
2 don't know how to upgrade (usually home users)
3 don't feel a need to upgrade (ignorant of security issues)
4 don't want to contact microsoft.com because they have pirate software
5 and so on
