Actually, reading this, I see that I was wrong. For most people in the world it is true, but the years it would take you to learn how to use Windows 7 need to be taken into account, so you might be one of the few people on the planet for whom it is cheaper to keep using antiquated software on your antiquated hardware.

Sit down little boy. I haven''t dismissed you from class yet. As you just openly admitted, you don't get updates for Windows XP, you get it for WIndows XP Embedded. In other words, you are a phenomenally stupid moron regularly applying patches for the wrong OS to your system, hoping / assuming that changes made for a different version of the OS are safe and actually fix the vulnerability. It really takes the mystery of why you have to keep reinstalling (ROTFLMAO)

Don't even bother to come to school tomorrow. You have no hope of making it through the school year with anything better than a big F.

Which reminds me ... yes I could write fuck, but on Slashdot the word fuck is spelled fsck. If you weren't a Windows douchebag who doesn't belong here in the first place, you'd know why the adults use fsck rather than fuck when posting on Slashdot.

Now off you go ... and go fsck yourself.

You are so stupid that you can't figure out that the time you spend reinstalling images and waiting for your antiquated shitstack of an OS easily offsets any cost of making the switch to a modern OS. Mind you, I'm no fan of Windows, but Windows 7 is much, much, much better than XP.

In any case, thanks for thinking you are smart and staying with XP without any thought of social responsibility. We all really appreciate that you are contributing to the overall insecurity of the Internet. Bravo!

Are you completely ignorant of history, or merely pretending to in order to try to dig yourself out of a hole of stupidity?

The number of stories about vulnerabilities on Slashdot in the last 24 hours, the last week, or the entire lifetime of Slashdot is in no manner, way, shape or form an indicator of which platform is the Petri Dish.

The fact remains that Windows is by far worse than OS X or Linux.

When you see articles about OS X or Linux vulnerabilities they are always based on a condition that, if true, means you already were owned: ""Gatekeeper doesn't verify an extra content in the apps. So if I can find an Apple-approved app and get it to load external content, when the user runs it, it will bypass Gatekeeper," As you can see there is a magical requirement. All I have to do is somehow get ahold of an approved app, modify it, and then somehow resubmit it with the modifications. Now all that needs to happen is that when Apple notifies the app author his new submission was approved that he is too stupid to know that he didn't make such a submission and fail to notify Apple of said fact.. See. Super Easy!!!

It's likess almost every Linux vulnerability you see: "If an attacker can somehow gain local access to the machine at a console, and the version of Linux he is running happens to be vulnerable, then it is possible that someone could use a privilege escalation exploit to gain root.

Another huge Linux vulnerability is the rm command: "rm is a huge security flaw! If a cracker somehow gains root access to the system, rm makes it possible to delete critical files!"

Show me one Linux vulnerability in the last year that didn't require a highly skilled attacker combined with a set of highly unlikely conditions, or rely on the system to be poorly configured. Hell, forget the year limit. Show me one from within the last decade. Good Luck!

Windows Embedded for Point of Service has nothing to do with XP, which is a desktop OS, and you have no need to wait for malicious software to bork your system, as you are quite adept at fscking it up yourself (clearly.) For the record I don't give a shit if you put from the rough; there are hetero-douchebags and homo-douchebags. Clearly you could go either way.

Maybe you wouldn't be an idiot if you could figure out that if "supported OSes get b0rked on a regular basis" then you'd have to be a real moron to venture into the wild with one that hadn't been receiving regular security fixes for a year.

Of course, you are full of shit, because the only OS that gets borked on a regular basis is Windollars.

Yes. You are right. You just don't understand what you said. Apple made security improvements. XP no longer makes security improvements. Ergo, it is reasonable to believe they improved security in a way that means XP can't access the system with the new security, since XP only has the old garbage. Understand now? It really isn't that complicated. Seriously.

It isn't a perfectly functional machine you moron. It hasn't received security updates in a year! How stupid can you be? And nobody is forcing you to upgrade. You have the option of continuing to use outdated software that isn't supported and then cry like a little girl when exactly what you were warned would happen happens, and your system is no longer allowed to play with the rest of the world.
