I am still using XP and will continue to use it even though Microsoft bailed out. They just keep upgrading to make more MONEY. I can do everything I want to with my XP. I have two computers with XP with all of the items I want, OR I know where to get what I want. I will get rid of whatever they have on a new computer and transfer my XP from the old one to the new with PCmover. have already done this with 2 different computers. ALL the new Microsoft upgrades i HATE. I bought a new computer for my wife and it has VISTA. What a piece of JUNK! It doesn’t compare with XP to the minutest degree.
To be fair, Vista came out 8 years ago and Windows 7 and 8.1 are far more stable operating systems. But I understand that you love your XP and I don’t mind if you keep it and move it on to new computers. But you should not go online with XP. It isn’t safe and you could end up having important information compromised or losing that wonderful set-up where you have everything organized the way you want it. Here’s an article with some suggestions for staying safer with XP.
