I am a real fan of XP Pro. Butlooks like Windws is trying to be
I-Phone OS.
What are XP fans going to do?

I understand there is still a HUGE installed
base of Windows XP around the world.
For most of us it's more of a love/hate relationship.
I WISH Linux really competed with Windows.

Lindows looked like a hopeful competitor but
even after they won the law suit, they didn't
seem to try very hard, became Linspire.

Do you think the worldwide economic
problems will pressure Microsoft to
keep XP support going for a few more years?

I'm at 3.4GHz single processor and newer
hardware won't even double my speed.
My last hardware upgrade was a SIX TIMES
speed increase at $ 125 per computer.

How many dollars per computer would
it cost just to TRIPLE my processing
power per computer?

6 processors, 64 bit architecture and
massive memory, right?

LOL

Nope. They've already dropped support for XP.

Keep using it.

Assuming you use browsers other than IE, the updates for them will keep
coming.

Important notice for users of Windows XP with Service Pack 3
(SP3): The support for this product ends April 8, 2014.
...and so can I expect no more AutoUpdates after that date?

SC Tom explained :
If you didn't want any, all you had to do was turn WUA off.
Yeah.., we know that but it's not the point. After XP updates I have to
reconfig various customizations and I don't want to have to do that any
more, but I do want the updates for as long as they're available.
