Okay, I don't have much sympathy for this argument and here's why: a) You are using hardware that is at least over 7 years old if it isn't supported by any newer version of windows and is probably older than that in which case it probably is time to upgrade b) You've known for well over 7 years that XP support wasn't going to last forever and have had time to plan and budget, its not like Microsoft just released XP and the next day said we are going to stop supporting it
XP is 12-13 year old operating system, no other company has supported a consumer, desktop operating system for that long. If you use equipment thats only compatible with XP and costs 10k, you've had a very long time to budget and plan for this. There is simply no reason why anyone should complain about XP going out of support.
Furthermore, Microsoft has no obligation to use the same device driver model in every operating system for as long as they exist as a company. Thats like complaining that Red Hat doesn't still support the 2.2 kernel because some older hardware only have drivers that work in the 2.2 kernel.
Just by buying that app from the Google Store made you give permission for that App to have access to the camera....which is the Devs....that are located outside the US. Any Google Apps and Devices are already eliminated out of the gate for our use.
Umm 'you give permission for this app to have access to the camera' doesn't mean the developers of that can look through the camera whenever they want or that they can look at the pictures whenever they want, it just means the app can use the camera.
