Comment Just how long is Microsoft supposed to support XP? (Score 1) 646

There's this thing people can buy called 'Extended Support' from Microsoft and you will continue to get security patches for their legacy OS's. If your company can't shell out a few bucks for this I don't see how it is Microsoft's fault. I'm sure there is other software in your environment that has similar support contracts why is Microsoft singled out? 10 years is a long time to support a product.

Everybody needs a little love sometime; stop hacking and fall in love!
