Default Why You Should Give Up Windows XP For Good?

Hi everyone. I am browsing through how to geek and have found some very good articles and found this interesting one Online Safety: Why You Should Give Up Windows XP For Good (Updated). I know that a lot of people will argue this and they think XP is the still the best OS around but it is time to move on.

Especially when you consider that Microsoft is yanking support got it. If someone finds a security hole in XP, MS will not be fixing it.

That's the point of dropping support. Once they drop support for it, they don't support it, thus they don't care about it, thus they don't release any more updates for it. No matter what.

Sweet, think geek was paid by M$ to get more people to upgrade... Fear mongering at its finest.
