Is POSReady 2009 worth the money?

Do any of you developers or IT pros think that this OS is worth it to buy. I have been looking at it and can see its April 2019 extended support date end as an advantage over normal XP pro SP3 :thumbup but from a technical stand point do you guys think its worth it over the normal XP. (But please put it in simpleton language so average day user like me can understand :angel )

It's just a modified version of Windows XP. It's supposed to be supported for much longer than "normal" XP but it's unknown whether MS is going to release updates or just provide technical support only.

There's been a long thread on this specific release already somewhere here on the forum. There's also a trial version available to download so you can check it out yourself. When it comes to standard usage, it's really no different than standard Windows XP.

Hmm I'll do that. If I like it then I'll buy it, and if I do buy it I'll post if I got updates for may's patch Tuesday after the 2014 WinXP death date.

EDIT: Liked it so I'm buy a product key.
