Farewell Windows XP

      Comments Off on Farewell Windows XP

Windows XP Tombstone I’ve kind of put it out of my mind.  But the time is coming that Windows XP will no longer be supported by Microsoft.  As for me, I gave up on it months ago.  When a customer calls for my regular job I encourage them to get away from it and soon.  It’s time to go to Windows 7 or Windows 8.  Windows 8 Metro may be a pain in the ass, but with some Classic Shell it becomes a fairly good operating system.

Only reason I remembered the end of XP is coming, is because someone handed me an XP computer to fix yesterday.  No media to speak of with it and I threw out my XP CD’s months ago before I moved back to Michigan.  I handed it back, and concluded I no longer support Windows XP for the repairs I do around here.  Hell I still cringe if someone talks to me about Windows Vista.  Unfortunately, it has a hang-time of April 11, 2017.

Whatever, it’s beyond time to pull the plug.  It’s brain dead.  Life support is getting too expensive.  Make your own metaphor.  I don’t care.  But for God’s sake let it go!
