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

Why do you need support for WXP?

There was no significant support, even at the times, when XP was the "latest and greatest" OS. They did not fix many bugs everyone asked them to fix. For example, many, many users complained that infotip may go behind the system tray. Was that bug fixed with m$'s full fledged support in place? No, not at all. Another one - big memory leak in Windows Explorer, in cases, it it opens shares on a remote storage... I'm sure you know more such examples too... Vendor knew about lot of bugs, but despite the full support, those bugs still in place even now.

So, why anyone needs so called "support". Take it as it works now and use it, or just move on.
