    The kids computer upstairs runs XP. They don't really use it so I threatened to get rid of it and they objected. This is the perfect excuse :)

    XP had a good run as an OS. It's time to put it to rest. The application developers now prefer the newer OS's with the latest features. RIP

    Hi Jerry,..i agree its had a good long run and newer versions are now in everyday use.

    ======================================================

    Hi Netty,..its hard to dump it,..i can understand the kids thinking they are not using it now but might sometime later,..i still use a Windows XP SP3 from time to time,..its just coming up to 10 years old,..works perfectly and fast to this day,..however with no further updates it will fall behind to work many programs,..i will keep mine and try convert it to something else.
