      Microsoft Cutting Off Support for Windows XP

      Windows XP End of Service
      Support is ending for Windows XP - Microsoft Windows
      ...after April 8, 2014, technical assistance for Windows XP will no longer be available, including automatic updates that help protect your PC. Microsoft will also stop providing Microsoft Security Essentials for download on Windows XP on this date. (If you already have Microsoft Security Essentials installed, you will continue to receive antimalware signature updates for a limited time, but this does not mean that your PC will be secure because Microsoft will no longer be providing security updates to help protect your PC.)

      Looks like I might have to invest in a new computer... I really hate the new Windows editions, especially Windows 8...

      Windows 7 is a phenomenal OS and there is literally no reason to stick with Windows XP when 7 has been a proven OS for so many years now. Windows 8, in its current state, is trash, but they'll eventually update it to be more like Windows 7. Under the hood, it is actually a better OS than 7, but the UI is absolutely horrid.

      On top of that, Windows XP was released in 2001, nearly 13 years ago. It was outdated 8 years ago, and still using it to this day is an act of insanity.

      Windows 7 is the Windows XP of the newer editions. Windows Vista is okay, 7 is what Vista should have been, and Windows 8 blows fucking hard.
