Microsoft, go home you're drunk

It *is* funny, but you know there are a lot of folks out there who are running XP and blissfully unaware that it's coming up to EOL in a few months. Most of them are running old hardware that won't support Windows 7 or 8. It's either Linux or landfill for these folks unless they want to continue on without support. :'(

I met another one yesterday.

It isn't Microsoft support that will kill XP - -it's the other software developers.


I'll use XP as long as Avast supports it. I don't have any need for any new device drivers.


I used Windows 98 for a few years after official support ended. I moved to XP when 98 stopped supporting my hardware.

If past history is any indication, MBAM provided support for Win 2K 2 years beyond when MS dropped support for it.

The last patch was July 13, 2010 and the last MBAM version that worked on 2K was issued July 12 2012 (


Mozilla came out with FF v13 on June 5, 2012 that would only work on XP and above so 2K was no longer supported.
