  As everyone knows, Microsoft ENDED support for Windows XP this past
week.

  Now, I understand that they will do likewise to Windows 7 come
January, 2015.

  It's as if they feel that they can FORCE people to throw out perfectly
good working hardware and software, and to keep up with the Jones' on
the latest operating system, that they'll fork over the money to buy
Windows 8, which is based on what the computer tablets have...which is
KILLING Microsoft's profits...and buy new hardware to go with it. They
must think everyone is made of money.

  It's about as bad as members of Congress saying that getting $175,000
a year is too low a salary. Try telling that to those who only get 10%
of that a year!! However, that's an argument for another message area.

  From what I've heard, most people will either stick with XP, Vista, or
7...or go to either Mac or Linux. I've had several tell me that "you
don't want Windows 8".
