How did they "stop supporting it" ??? Surly the old software will still run.


It'll run, but you'll be at risk for threats...

Quote from: MicrosoftWhat happens if I continue to use Windows XP?

If you continue to use Windows XP now that support has ended, your computer will still work but it might become more vulnerable to security risks and viruses. Internet Explorer 8 is also no longer supported, so if your Windows XP PC is connected to the Internet and you use Internet Explorer 8 to surf the web, you might be exposing your PC to additional threats. Also, as more software and hardware manufacturers continue to optimize for more recent versions of Windows, you can expect to encounter more apps and devices that do not work with Windows XP.

What does it mean if Windows isn't supported?

An unsupported version of Windows will no longer receive software updates from Windows Update. These include security updates that can help protect your PC from harmful viruses, spyware, and other malicious software, which can steal your personal information. Windows Update also installs the latest software updates to improve the reliability of Windows--new drivers for your hardware and more

Well of course you can try running it but microsoft gives zero guarantees about how it will run and they basically ditched it. They don't do updates, etc. So if you run it, you're on your own.

Yeah it's like Windows 7. Extended support ends in 2019.

They're more pushing us to use the more recent versions, which some people don't want due to fearing of being stalked by the NSA

Who needs updates to Windows XP if XP runs fine anyways :P

I had more issues in XP than I had in Windows 7 and 10 combined. First, it was less stable (no freezing but stuff acted funky), softwares often stopped working for no reason (eg TI-Connect) and most Windows updates failed (especially SP3, which rendered my computer unuseable, so I had to revert to a system restore point that had SP2). I never had issues in Windows 7 and 10, except some of the minor annoyances in Windows 10 that I mentioned before (such as the default programs control panel screen opening everytime I start Opera but it always starts in the background rather than in front of the browser)
