The normal answer to that question, for any OS, is "when the proportion
of people using it is small" and/or "when it becomes too much of a
burden for us to continue to support, e.g. it's holding us back

We by no means oppose Microsoft EOLing Windows XP, but given that they
are not making later versions available for free download, people will
continue to use it whatever we say. And if they do, we'd rather they use
new Firefox than old Firefox, or unsupported IE.
