at  the  end  of  http://freearc.org/Statistics.aspx page you can find
stats  about  OS  used  by  ysers  of my program - archiver written in
haskell.  these  are  14%  of  *geeks* using the l;atest alpha version
(stable version of my program ddoesn't report this parameter)

so  dropping  XP support means that newer GHC can't be used anymore to
compile general-purpose programs targeting large user audience

Best regards,
