I'm sure I'm the only one who STILL has a computer that runs windows XP. Not my main computers, but I have one that I use daily for server stuff that runs XP because it plays well with other things. This EoL news hurt my soul but as hub says it's time to give it up LOL. I don't wanna.Cry


If you're still using Windows XP, you just won $100 from Microsoft.

The only catch is that you have to upgrade to a new Windows 8 computer.

Those who are eligible for the promotion can redeem the credit at Microsoft's online store or their retail shops -- and the fact that you still use the 13-year old Windows XP is subject to verification by Microsoft (MSFT, Fortune 500). The offer is good for PCs ranging in price from $599 and $2,299 and will run until June 15.

The promotion is part of Microsoft's plan to get the last remaining Windows XP users off the operating system before the April 8 end of life date. After April 8, Microsoft will no longer issue security updates to address viruses and exploits to the operating system.

Bank are scrambling because 95% of the  ATMs run on windows xp.  That could be a mess with no security updates. They want an extension of support from microsoft.

We upgraded to windows 8 at work and OMG THE HEADACHES WE HAVE! It's nice to look at but we have to remotely access other systems and apps to get our work done....like two desktops. Every day we are on the phone with IT. Getting a headache now just thinking about tomorrow
