    Nope. Been using 7 on my self-built desktop since the early days of the OS, my laptop runs 10.9.2 (it's a Mac!). At work we have a few slow-movers but overall the entire place is on 7.

    I just restarted and connected my old XP Home desktop after 2-3 months. I may follow some of @Synycalwon's tips, but I am not too worried about getting an infection as I moved or copied most to a W7 ThinkPad. Anti-viruses just updated fine, but that may not mean much.

    I seem to prefer listening to music on this old pc. Ripped cd's sound better. It's either the 7200 hdd speed or the customised Realtek AC'97 sound.

    Via my Note 3 on AC.

    I wish I still had an XP system that I could trade in and get the $100 off. I usually give my equipment away others in the extended family.

    I've been off XP for quite a while now. The contract I'm working on now, they have about 1400 computers that need to be upgraded to Windows 7. From what I heard, Microsoft was initially going to charge people $1500 or so to support Windows XP machines after the date, but this article states that they had a change of heart. Microsoft slashes Windows XP custom support prices just days before axing public patches - Computerworld
