Microsoft Support for Windows XP may have been extended to 2014, but it seems to have died on the forums perspective.

Support, ultimately, doesn't matters at all for the user. Once the program is installed, it will work the very same way "forever", until you replace with something else.
XP is far from being dead.

I agree with Aljandro Blue the government department I work for still uses it probably for obvious reasons but I reckon as long as one is careful as you are with any other OS yuo should be right.

I have a couple of machines with XP still on them and even a spare XP install disk - could become a collectors items eh? LOL!! I find them real helpful when fixing and there will always be a die hard core of users.

My concern is the way that Windows is is going now.

I still love my OLD Windows XP SP3, all of the offered updates..as soon as I can have someone look to see why the monitor
won't connect ( message on the monitor screen " No Signal " ) or something similar. . I will still use it.

Probably means your video on the motherboard is out Lady Pink maybe a cheap GPU might fix the problem if your mobo has a slot that will take one you can get for it.

I visited UC Davis recently and they still have machines running Windows 2000, mixed in with others running Windows XP. The 2000 and XP machines, from what I could tell, are being used to manage and oversee some very serious and heavy-duty equipment.

Moral is: Support from MS means nothing to the longevity of an OS that simply works, and XP most certainly "simply works".

Hi there
some people are still using THESE versions of Windows - but probably never log on to any Forum.

(Windows 98 and Windows 3.11)

Cheers

ICit2 .....Hi thanks for your reply and suggestions.. I hope I won't sound tolly lost .. please tell me what is GPU ? I know it must be easy for you all who understand .

I actually did follow a couple of guys here last year and installed 2 slots of ram to my old XP, had crucial to run a scan , then followed up with the install myself.( using W7F assistance ), had to try 2 times then it just clicked and worked great.

GPU means Graphics Processing Unit, it's basically just means your graphics/video card.
