I still use my Windows XP laptop since 2005. Is it time for me to upgrade? I knew about the discontinued support for awhile now. I'm very careful online and never updated to Service Pack 3. I was planning on getting Windows 7 since about 2-3 years ago but never got around to doing it. It's going to be annoying moving all my music and files to a new computer.

 

Then last year I wanted a Windows 8.1 tablet/laptop since people complained about Windows 8. I'm undecided right now. Saw a few Windows 7 refurbished laptop for a reasonable price on ebay so I don't know. I think the whole hackers are waiting for the right time to exploit Windows XP could be overexaggerating. I believe it but at the same time maybe Microsoft wants more $.  

 

Windows XP was awesome.

Old sport, I cannot recommend Windows 8.1 enough, especially with a tablet or comparable device. The majority of people that complain about Windows 8 simply do not like the new Start Screen and are unaware that the desktop is still there and all of their applications will work just as if they were using Windows 7.

 

Contrary to popular belief you're not forced to use the Modern (formerly Metro) apps. In fact, you are forced to use the Modern apps just as much as you were forced to use Internet Explorer in every version of Windows since IE's creation; you're not. Simply change default applications as you would previously. And it works exactly like Windows 7 simply with added features.

Still using XP, and I'm riding that pony as far as it will take me. I want to get a Mac for things like video and sound editing because I do a lot of things with music, but because of expense I may get another Windows based desktop.

I'm assuming that Microsoft is only doing this to force more people to use their newer models.
