Re: End of Windows XP support means beginning of security...

Actually, this is nothing new, MS seems to want to continually end support for one product in order to push their newest or whatever the going reason is for the time. Having read about Vista etc. I have decided to stay with XP until my machine stops, liking the ease of use as it is, however I do make sure all security programs including NIS, host file etc are updated.

Also, XP is very old now.
