I've been pressing my day to day clients, as well as informed readers here on BetaNews, on the case for ditching Windows XP altogether. I'm guessing by now that chances are, if you're still running XP at this point, you're probably going to stick it out on the platform for the indefinite short term. I've already written about the best ways to safely migrate off XP without losing functionality in the workplace, but if you absolutely have no choice but to keep riding the sinking ship for now, here's hoping at least you are going to be smart about how you do so.

Can we please just stop all of the madness!! The sky is not falling, the ship is not sinking etc etc! XP will be no less secure Next month then it was a month ago. It has been less secure for a long time. Windows 7 and 8 are far more secure. But XP Will not stop working!! As long as you don't do online shopping, banking or financial programs, it will work for decades to come.

Hey guys, My computer has been running slow for quite a while now, and I can't find a reason at all. I cleaned the inside of my tower and went through most of the cleaning steps you all recommend in that post except for the one step that required me to have a Xp Sp3 startup disk. Like I said I...
