Windows XP’s time draws nigh;

❝ Support for Windows XP comes to an end in April. There has already been much written about this auspicious event, so I won’t rehash it all here. Of course, we realize that just because support is ending, it does not mean XP usage will – much to the delight of attackers around the world. I’m not sure if it’s possible to have fond memories of an operating system, but XP will always maintain a warm place in my heart – just not on my laptop. ❞ [1]
