    1. Continue to use XP...naked run.
    2. Change to Win7/8
    3. Change to Linux

    Keep Windows XP SP3 updated april 8 2014 running as long as possible. Don't give a rat's ass about Windows 8. :D
    I use linux only when I'm really bored, which is once or twice a month.
    Windows 7 SP1 runs on laptop.

    I use an old XP PC to run old games. Upgrading to anything newer cuts the performance in half as WDDM is not optimized for single core CPUs, nor are these operating systems. Playing those games on linux is out of the question, so I'll have to keep running XP until I can get slightly newer old hardware that can handle 7 properly. I do have a modern computer as well (before someone says to upgrade) but I live at multiple locations and can't afford buying multiple full-fledged PCs.

    Microsoft f......ed it up really this time, they should provide an operating system for legacy hardware as well.

    Here, Windows xp still runs just fine, got updates (I think the last updates) tested on 10Pc, requested by our client at my own internet cafe
    i've downloded all (off line windows) updates just for backup..probably to switch on W7 pro as my XP migrate.

    But IE backhole problem occurs without any update.
    Naked running XP takes hi risk.

    none of those options.

    I have a 12 year old computer that runs quite happily on XP but there are so few windows 7 drivers for the hardware I'd end up scrapping the machine. Now that's not good for my pocket and neither is it good for the environment. Congrats M$, scrapping XP may have turned you into the environmental anti Christ.

    I will continue using XP SP3 (not updated, but using a good firewall & a lot of common sense), with Windows 7 on a spare partition, only for the games that need it (offline, as I don't really trust it to go online, yeah, I'm a paranoid). All that, until ReactOS comes up stable. ;)

    My XP becomes very slow,
    It was normal on original sp3 but it waste my time since sp3+allUpdates.
    Especially, installed Avira...
    I think 512MB Ram can not run 7,
    Hence, it's hi time to switch to Ubuntu.

    Because Microsoft ceased support for Windows XP and earlier, THERE WILL BE NO MORE WARRANTIES OF THEM WORKING PROPERLY!

    I'll continue using XP off course, cause that is the latest and only Windows OS that my old hardware can decently run. :)

    And good people like harkaz from RyanVM Forums have already easily ported all four May 2014 critical updates from Windows Embedded POSReady 2009 to Windows XP.

    I'm so scared, I'm trembling. :unsure:

    Using a good antivirus, firewall and most importantly a lot of common sense will keep you reasonably safe, no matter what windows operating system you are using.

    And Microsoft will provide updates for Windows Embedded POSReady 2009 (which is a variant of Windows XP) for another 5 years, and those updates can be patched and installed in Windows XP. Maybe most users won't be savvy enough to use or bother with that, but some of us will.

    I think it was Daz that mentioned Server 2003 is also still another option, not much mention of using it to replace XP.
