I'm a Windows XP user, relying on the "point of sale" registry hack to keep the security updates flowing from Microsoft (through 2019).  My needs are fairly meager (browsing forums like this one, shoppping at Amazon, and playing YouTube videos), so I figure if it's not broken, why fix it?


Nice to be here.
