An estimated 95% of American bank ATMs run on Windows XP

I bought a new gateway laptop with XP media edition as recently as 2008, I don't think they have any business dropping support, they have a responsibility to customers that buy their products in good faith. This is another reason to develop good alternate operating systems, Microsoft sucks, if they were a conservative owned company the government would be all up their asses right now.

Those 208,000 independently-run kiosks, built by Triton, Genmega and Nautilus Hyosung, make up the other half of the nation's ATMs. And nearly all of them run on an even older, simpler operating system called Windows CE -- which Microsoft still supports
Amazing. Windows CE still has support.

That should take care of it, I have everything running on Windows 7 now except a Dell Precision drafting laptop I have and I have dual boot both 7 and XP on it.

My company will probably have to pay for the extra support until they get them all changed over. It's one of those big Fortune 50 places.
Back when I was in the automotive business Sherwin provided me paint mixing software and a touch screen computer (this was in 2001) that was running on Windows 95 as they found it was the most stable so they left it alone. Sherwin makes good automotive paint.

Here it is a month after XP support expired and I fired up my wife's XP laptop just to see what happened when I clicked Windows Update. To my surprise, a "security Update" for Win Xp and an update for IE 8 downloaded and installed.
Our office went "to the Cloud" over two months ago. The sales rep said; "don't worry about XP, all we do is install a Citrix Receiver on your XP computer and everything goes through that software to the Cloud.......all your software including MS Office is accessed on our servers in the Cloud through the Citrix receiver".".............Our Constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other."

Out of 8 computers in the house, only one has XP and it's not used any more. It needs to be sent to the recycling center after I take out the hard drive.
