    I am still using Windows XP. I hear support is going to end in May for Windows XP, and I do not want to upgrade to Vista or Windows 7. Any suggestions?

    When it says support will end, it just means that, if anything goes wrong, they cant help you. But you can still use it.

    Yeah. He is pretty much right. You can still use it. In fact, there are lots of articles and videos all over the net for troubleshooting in case XP goes wrong.

    Why won't you upgrade to Windows 7 by the way? It's the best OS since XP! :) You wouldn't regret it.

    Hi ringshin,
    I researched and found the information from Microsoft’s website:
    “Important notice for users of Windows XP with Service Pack 2 (SP2): The support for your product will end July 13, 2010! To ensure that you will receive all important security updates for Windows after that date you need to upgrade to Windows XP with Service Pack 3 (SP3) or later versions such as Windows 7.”
    support.microsoft.com/ph/1173

    It means that Windows xp sevice pack 2 will end and you will only be able to install windows xp service pack 3. IMO, it would be better for you to switch to windows 7. It has more features.

    I am also using Xp, I like to use that, because With Windows XP, the task bar and the Start button have been updated, Ntfs file system supporting, remote desktop feature supported.If you have difficulty using the keyboard or mouse, you can quickly set options using the Accessibility Wizard.Windows XP presents a significantly redesigned graphical user interface.

    I using windows XP since I buy a computer. I think it is best operating system which i used. I also some others operating systems used. Windows Vista, Linux Ubuntu, Windows 98, 2003. But i never operating freely and easily like XP. It is supported all programmes,softwares,games,graphics,drivers which are does not supported easily on other OS. I think it is world no.1 OS. I am very satisfied with its services.
