Since a working PC is vital to participation in the Forum, I believe this is an appropriate place to ask this question.
Back in March I was considering replacing my old PC. Because of the bad reports on Windows 8 and the difficulty in finding a new PC with Windows 7, I decided to keep my current PC for a while longer. It has MS XP as the operating system, one that I’m comfortable with and can understand. But, I’ve been told that support of XP will end in early 2014. So, my question - what exactly does that mean? Will I still be able to use XP, only without any updates, or will I be forced to find a new PC with one of the other operating systems, such as Windows 7, or whatever version of Windows 8 Microsoft come up with? Is there any chance that Microsoft may decide to continue supporting XP?
I need advice on what to do in the next 6 months.
