He's right. XP dies very soon. Time to move on.

Microsoft: "PCs running Windows XP after April 8, 2014, should not be considered to be protected, and it is important that you migrate to a current supported operating system – such as Windows 8.1 – so you can receive regular security updates to protect their computer from malicious attacks."

Not everyone has the cash to spare to buy a new comp. Myself included, though it appears I won't have much choice soon.

Now, I know low-end new comps aren't all that expensive in the abstract, running $200 or so if you find the right deal. But I, for one, don't ever really have that much to spare. It's hard enough for me to find the spare $30 to buy OOTP every year.

OR

Will XP be the safest as no hacker would even attempt to try anything?

Hmmmmmm

and Oliver, you don't need a new computer, just new Operating system

Ubuntu is a free Operating System, and I believe there are no issues using OOTP 14 with it

Ignore this man. That idea is stupid and dangerous. XP will be the primary hacker target starting next month.

Whatever else you do, STOP USING XP NEXT MONTH.

Microsoft warns of post-April zero day hack bonanza on Windows XP ? The Register

"Microsoft has a Windows XP problem: people still like it and aren't willing to upgrade just yet. So it's warning users that if they don’t upgrade soon, hackers will lie in wait each new Patch Tuesday to reverse-engineer a full set of new vulnerabilities.

'The very first month that Microsoft releases security updates for supported versions of Windows, attackers will reverse engineer those updates, find the vulnerabilities and test Windows XP to see if it shares those vulnerabilities,' said Tim Rains, Microsoft's director of trustworthy computing, in a blog post.

'If it does, attackers will attempt to develop exploit code that can take advantage of those vulnerabilities on Windows XP. Since a security update will never become available for Windows XP to address these vulnerabilities, Windows XP will essentially have a 'zero day' vulnerability forever.'

He points out that from July 2012 through July 2013, Windows XP received 45 patches, 30 of which were relevant to Windows 7 and 8 as well, and there is considerable flaw cross-over found among the three operating systems. XP is also by far the most malware-infected operating systems, he points out."

Anyone using XP is about to be at serious risk.

I don't think either set of hardware I have would run Windows 8 very well. The laptop I'm on right now (having weird issues with my monitor on the desktop) definitely couldn't.

Like I said, I appreciate that, in the grand scheme of things, a new comp isn't very expensive anymore. But, I for one don't have a spare $270 plus tax to buy one of those.

I'd go Windows 7. It's probably around a hundred bucks or so.
