“Despite that Windows XP is no longer secure and no longer updated, it has still more users than Windows 10.”

False. In February of this year, Windows 10 market share surpassed both Windows XP and 8.1, becoming the second most popular Windows OS in current use (next to Win7). That was a couple of months ago, so its second-place ranking is even more solid now.

Much adoo about nothing.
Those of us still running XP know it’s shortcomings and have plugged the holes with 3rd part software.
Furthermore, most of us smart enough to still be running XP aren’t stupid enough to be using a cloud
service of any kind.

Isn’t it time to update? Why do you consider yourself “smart enough to still be running XP”?

Because Vista is losing its support, while 7, 8(.1), and 10 have have malware baked in. Did I say “malware”? I meant “telemetry” (or whatever Microsoft is calling it now), “DRM”, and “updates” (that will continue to provide additional… [I]questionable[/I] features).
