You can't, but a fact is real, XP and POSReady are not the same. POSReady is built with embedded systems in mind, and is lighter and different on top from a standard XP system. Only the core is the only thing they have for sure in common

A pet grooming service is located in the base of a former hairdresser (that shut down in early 2015) in Banks, Canberra. I've seen the computer screens, and they oddly use Windows XP Professional in the way that make me feel nostalgic (No wallpaper and old-fashioned login screen turned on). Odd enough since they opened around 2016-2017.

So i'm giving the question to you in tribute of the thread where my first post was: Where have you seen Windows XP lately?


All Indonesian's ATM is still running XP now!

The office my Dentist runs still has one Windows XP machine if I remember right, the rest of the machines there are on Windows 7, also a lot of digital signage in the New York metro area either uses XP or a derivative of Windows XP like XP Embedded or Windows Embedded POSReady 2009.

I also have an XP laptop (HP Compaq Presario V2000) that I grew up with. Such a refined PC and absolutely marvelous. Unfortunately, my charger died out and it has no OS currently. I was hoping to find its recovery media as I got it used and didn't get it.

All Windows versions
Some large businesses such as hospitals, chemistry labs, and factories still utilize Windows XP because certain software they need to use may be incompatible with later Windows versions. One time, at a hospital, I saw a medical computer running Windows 2000, like a year ago :P

Saw Windows XP Pro (an embedded version) running a coffee register at school, seems odd.

I have seen some schools in my area clinging on to XP Professional SP3, using the excuse of "it's too expensive to get something else", and then buying mini-fridges for faculty members.

Most vehicles operated by my city's public transport company that have been shipped after 2014 have interior LCD displays to show information about following stops and some public transport and city event advertisements. During a recent trip I noticed that one of the displays is stuck with a message box with the Luna error icon striking my eye. Quite an odd choice for 2015...

I know those displays. My father is a taxi driver himself and I turn them on every time he asks me to start up the cab. I was wondering what OS those displays were running on. It also makes sense as I see what looks like a pre-booting phase of legacy versions of Windows (7 and older) before the splash screen initiates.

That's very likely actually. There's an apparatus that's below the front passenger seat and it might include a disk, power unit and some way to connect to the Internet like a modem. A switch turns the whole thing on and off. The disk might have WinFLP and the modem enables Internet connectivity.
