    That's because MS is doing all they can to get their customers off of XP, even if it's an upgrade to Windows 7, if the machines can run it.

    While I do have 2 computers running & designed for XP, they're only used to check the weather or read articles. I no longer even use those OS's to post on forums, as I'm scared to enter my passwords on them. I have recently done some beta testing of security apps on them.

    As soon as what support XP does get is dumped, now less than 4 months away, these will be converted into Linux Mint computers. Since neither has PAE, the latest I can run is Mint 13, however it's supported until sometime in 2017. By then the computers will likely pass or be given away or donated. No more cash will be spent on them.

    PAE Physical Address Extension? Wasn't this in use from the late 90s?
    I am not a Linux person but do run Mint 13 off an USB SSD. I find it annoying that if I want to update to a newer version I must wipe everything.
    I will run CPUID on my main machine to see about the PAE thing.
    I finally am dual booting XP and 7 Home 'Not So' Premium. I never got XP to talk to my phone that I want to root but thats another story..
