Nobody is taking M$ side. I run a linux distro and wouldn't let MS near my main rig. (I run W8.1 in a sandbox). XP is dead and unsupported not just by MS but by software and hardware vendors. Poor 64bit support; architechture that is not compatable with the latest chips or DDR4/5 memory. To hold onto XP is holding the future of computing back.  I drive a car not a horse and cart for a reason.

Hey teller, where's the trooth? You can't blame the Pit for problems you're having running XP. I'm sure the Crew has got the tests up to speed with Win 10, still good for 8 or 9, but XP? 

I won't even get up on my Tux podium here, but I think people that run Windows should stay one release behind -  at least while M$ still supports it with patches and the bugs get worked out of the "latest and greatest". But XP? Come on, that's like shunning fiber optics and hanging on to the good ole rabbit ears.
