Microsoft threats users to make them stop using windows XP

Postby KEN » Fri Aug 23, 2013 9:01 am

Microsoft has a Windows XP problem: people still like it and aren't willing to upgrade just yet. So it's warning users that if they don’t upgrade soon, hackers will lie in wait each new Patch Tuesday to reverse-engineer a full set of new vulnerabilities.


So with every windows update, XP users are getting in trouble. Turn windows update off if you still use XP.
Lame Microsoft, can't come up with anything better.

i know this for ages. XP is too good to let it go, it has everything that you need.
first they limited it by not allowing DX10 / DX11 to run on it, while it can easily work on XP, now this.
i'll never stop using XP, its good OS to have.
