    Support officially ended today for Windows XP.

    XP users what will be your next OS. Will you upgrade to Windows 8 or jump ship and hop on a Mac?

    Windows XP: Microsoft officially ends support of XP. But what if you still use it? (+video) - CSMonitor.com

    There are around 1,000+ computers at my high school all running XP. Some of them were Windows 7 computers downgraded to XP (stupid county policy or something). Now I finally have a reason to use my Surface Pro (other than it having more processing power than most of the downgraded PCs and just being awesome in general) instead of those dumb computers.

    Any company that hasn't updated to at least W7 is not a company I want to work for. They're risking way too much.

    You can say what you like, but the media center addition was the most useful os there has been. I am keeping one computer with xp on it to run several programs that will not run on 8.1. A ton of people are going to miss xp. Class act.

    Windows Xp is great if your computer is 7 years old and you don't want optimized support for multicore processors, large RAM and new architecture. It had it's heyday.

    W8 is great and with the latest update it's heading in a great direction.

    Have some older shop diagnostic interfaces that require XP (Chrysler DRB, GM TechII - mainly physical serial port; virtual USB serial is sketchy). Keep a couple of old notebooks around for that purpose.

    I'm more concerned about Java 6 dependencies and a real lack of support for IE10/11.

    XP was a great OS for it's time. That time was the early 2000s. By the time Windows 7 launched, XP was already very long in the tooth.

    No. Why buy Chromebook when the old hardware running XP is capable of running Linux? I have an ancient PC from 2005 that's been running Linux since 2008. It originally came with XP.
