Microsoft continues trying to kill XP in The Lounge Posted August 31, 2010 If firefox does kill it off, there is always Opera, Google Chrome, Safari, etc. So many choices. Plus, a lot of installers merely block you from installing based on the OS you have. The support is still there in many cases, they just use a script to block you from installing it. A simple install to the updated machine, copy to the older, back in business. Easier still, UniExtract can extract installer files in most cases... You just have to know the tricks they pull. Kind of deceptive to claim "it no longer is supported" when all they really do a lot of times is simply block it's use on an older machine at the install level. Install Shield & other companies support these kinds of tech. You sure are willing to jump through a bunch of hoops to keep using a obsolete OS. Why didn't you do that with Windows 95 or 98?
