Hello from Derbyshire, UK

Hi there. Long time XP Home user here. When I set up my system in summer 2008 I looked hard at security issues. I've kept it updated but haven't thought too much about security since. (BTW in all this time I've never had a malware infection.) With support for XP due to end soon I decided to look at security again. What a minefield of information (and misinformation!). I've read enough to convince me that XP won't be dead from next April. I for one intend to continue using it until either there's some hardware incompatiblity, or everything just gets too slow.

One ambition I have is to keep a system motherboard in continuous use long enough for it to actually break down!

Well if you take a look at our users, OS death date means nothing. Windows 98 and 2000 are still going strong here!

:hello:
