re: RIP Windows XP: Readers Speak
Thinking a bit out of the box: In the future, we're all going to need 2 computers instead of 1. One of them will be with the newest Windows version available and with all the software a user or business needs with that environment. (accounting software, special imaging software, etc.) The second computer will have a late long-term-release Linux version such as Ubuntu with VirtualBox or VMware installed so that Windows XP and its legacy software critical to a user or business can still be used long after support from Microsoft ends. The Linux computer will also securely allow for e-mail, banking, document transfers and safe web browsing. This solution isn't cheap but it's the best fix I can think of for businesses, libraries, hospitals, police departments, etc. with huge numbers of Windows XP computers that are mission-critical.
