    Windows users stopped "rejoicing" a long time ago. Unless they switched to Linux like the rest of us smart defectors.

  • Microsoft: Judgment Day Is Almost Here [View article]
    A few points here: 1) "Without critical Windows XP security updates, your PC may become vulnerable to harmful viruses, spyware, and other malicious software which can steal or damage your business data and information."

    Not necessarily true. Microsoft's updates are about as useful for security as a paper bag no matter what version of Windows.

    2) "Anti-virus software will also not be able to fully protect you once Windows XP itself is unsupported."

    This is an outright lie. Microsoft's updates have NOTHING to do with your anti-virus and malware protection if it's a separate program. Although avoiding IE in favor of say Firefox is a good choice. It always WAS.
