    Appreciate your input; only reason I want to consider using Win7, which I got from the pre-order craze back in 2009, is to use the OS as a Sandbox which currently I use XP for (and typing this now in...

    There's only one real way to protect your OS and that's not to directly use it (i.e., browse in a virtual machine with golden recovery point). No other scheme will be adequate enough and folks that...

    They just posted an addendum at the story I linked above. Oracle clarified their statements in that future updates may or may not work in XP (i.e., customer beware). They probably will still work,...

    Oracle ends JAVA support for XP

    I say if Oracle cannot support XP, then, it's time it releases JAVA to the Open Source community. Of course it won't; sad. :)

    Just saw this myself. I wonder if Microsoft will look the other way. If so, XP now has a new life until 2019. Will now have to re-enable updates. lol

    I'm still running Win98 for some games (though that VM has online disabled for obvious reasons). So long as you find XP useful and viable, you already paid for the license so have fun. :)
