    Don't be so sure !! ;)
    Those who have used XP to date will certainly continue to do the same tomorrow.

    I'm not going to stop anytime soon. My use of it is minimal but regular. I'm using far older software as well. I have some eeprom burning projects lined up and my eprom burner uses MSDOS or Windows NT4.

    I won't stop either. My XP has old software and parallel port used for bit-banging some devices. Also dual boot with very old Mint. Minimal internet use to safe places such as this.

    I dual boot XP to run legacy genealogical software that the writers haven’t or won’t update that would run on a newer version of Windows. I am not going to start all over again to reconstruct family history on other software that would run on Win 10 that has taken me 15 years on XP. I have no choice other than continue with XP, so it is irrelevant to me that it’s life has ended.
    I don’t access the internet using XP so it’s fine.

    I don't use XP since many years, but I wonder why people have to continually say and hope " XP finally it's over, Seven finally closes ..... ". If someone - many for Seven - is happy with XP or Seven and has not security problem why force to migrate to new Windows version, and to be happy if the older end ?

    In August 2018, Microsoft silently ceased to support Windows XP Embedded POSReady 2009 for pre-SSE2 processors, except for the updates for Internet Explorer. Different support teams enforced their own standards. Standards at Microsoft? Not when expediency rules it seems.

    I have not observed any intrusion or malware effects while running Windows XP POSReady on my pre-SSE2 AMD Athlon XP 3000+ powered system. Neither have MBAE 1.12.1.109, OSArmor 1.4.3, Comodo Memory Firewall 2.0.4.20 or Avast 10.4.2233 alerted me to anything untoward, nor scans by SuperAntiSpyware and Malwarebytes Antimalware 2.2.1.1043. Agnitum Outpost Firewall Pro 9.3 HIPS is silent even though its security is set to Maximum. Everything that can is run under DropMyRights. I admire young ladies in their sexy underwear (and sometimes without) at play with their gentlemen friends in the safe surroundings of Sandboxie 3.76.

    The only trouble with Windows XP is that web browser standards are leaving me behind but Mozilla Firefox ESR 45.9 (with NoScript 5.1.8.6, HttpsEverywhere and DecentralEyes) still gives me access to everything I want to to see. I am debating whether to continue with Windows 10 or go with Linux. Microsoft's loose adherence to its standards for Windows XP Embedded POSReady 2009 is a gentle hint to use Linux, I think.

    Footnote: I DO NOT use XP for any purposes where privacy and confidentiality are vital, such as online banking. Since 2013 I have entrusted those functions to Windows 7.

    Try using New Moon 27.9.6. for XP developed by Roytam1.
    There is the SSE version and also no-SSE:

    I really like WMP on XP so I have a couple of XP systems for that sole purpose.i.e. music.

    So why wouldn`t I run XP ?

    Regards Eck:)
