Microsoft predicts bleak future for XP users after patches run out

Quote:
In a blog post, a senior Microsoft executive has warned users of Windows XP to get a move on and upgrade to shinier, newer versions of Windows. The post, by Microsoft's Trustworthy Computing Director Tim Rains, points out that after the end of official support for XP, on 08 April 2014, the company will be basically forced to pass on details of likely XP vulnerabilities to potential attackers, without providing users with the means to defend themselves.

Jeez. Talk about FUD.

So I'll use my XP to run Nero 6, do the heavy lifting in the file transfer department (M$ still hasn't fixed 7's glacier-speed file transfers from disc-to-desktop glitch that takes just minutes in XP), work with Paint Shop Pro and Magix Notation, etc and a bunch of other stuff. Even Avira says they'll provide antivirus updates for a full year after M$ pulls the plug. No problem for me.
