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!
