People should really let XP die.

Post by winnt32 »

Kind of off topic but...
Why are people so obsessed with Windows XP? It reached end-of-life three years ago.

You really need to stop going on and fanboying about WinXP. It's really stupid.

It came out in 2001. It EOLed in 2014. Let it die, don't patch it, don't upgrade it, don't create excuses for people to not upgrade to Win7+, don't use it.

The security risks for using XP/Serv03 are insane.

In fact, the main reason the NHS got attacked by WannaCry was because of them using Windows XP.

So stop trying to bring it back to life and let it die.

I agree, XP shouldn't be used in corporate environments. But please check your facts.
WannaCry infected a VERY small percentage of XP machines, and was most definitely NOT the attack vector for the recent NHS issues.
