Good link I'll pass it on to mates who still run XP and are busy resisting W10 like many on W7 W8.1  dont remember such a resistance on other change overs and to buy a new computer today all loaded with it and so have to go buy off of E Bay like i did as left W7 a bit late as clung to XP. 

 

And have you seen the prices asked on E Bay for W7 :whistling:

I'm running XP in my Vm Machine and It's getting Updates as normal, but it need some tricks to get them. always use manual update, and don't download unnecessary updates, or you will stuck in update loop and it won;t update.

Why are you digging up old dead threads?  Do you lack anything original and of interest?

 

I would not encourage anyone to retain Windows XP unless they were experts at computing and enjoyed a daily battle with malware - which most are not.

 

Windows 10 is the future - get used to it.

I wonder if that explains Lamb Chops lack of activity, her PC used to attempt suicide on a monotonously regular basis but she hasn't been back since April. Maybe a stable reliable OS has given her a quieter life.

Well I'm still in the land of the living and loving using W7.   And a Happy New Year to you all.😂

 

I own my computer - still using the 2013 one - Gigabyte and its fine. I also paid for W7 software to go onto it.

As for 10 - I suspected MS had own reasons for giving it away. - I mean who in business gives away millions if not billion or so for no return? So the return is...........................they know what you do every minute of the time on line.

And also control what programs you can install. 

 

 

That's my main reason for not using it.   If and when they stop patching it - well in the lap of the Gods.

Lamb Chop- Nice to see you back here again.

 

I am not aware that Microsoft are giving away free copies of Windows 10 or even offering free updates from Win 7 and Win 8 any more.

 

There are quite a few unauthorised sellers of Microsoft software on Ebay selling license keys - but Microsoft are stamping down on them and freezing illegal software bought by gullible people.

 

As I mentioned in another recent post here - Windows 10 is the future and people clinging to Win XP, Win 7 and Win 8 are going to face increased malware threats as MS support for the older platforms is phased out. 

 

I may well be in the minority - but I consider that Windows 10 is the best version of Windows they have produced - and I have tried all of them since its inception as Windows 1.0 in 1985. 

 

Microsoft are constantly updating Windows 10 and adding more useful features. Frequent security patches are issued to keep abreast of the malware that is getting more prevalent, more sophisticated and more damaging by the day. This will never end - there will always be malevolent Countries, political/commercial scumbags and hackers attempting to take advantage of Internet connected computers, phones and other devices..
