On the other hand, this scare tactic could backfire and motivate more people to diversify now...

shor t-term pain... long-term gain for other options ;D

Even though Microsft has stopped supporting XP they should fix this bug in XP because it's such a bad bug and many people are still using XP. People using XP should use Firefox instead of the archaic Internet Explorer 8, but many are afraid to make any modifications to their computer system.

  


Try not to be so naive. MS, and all of Jewmerica, would fall to pieces without their intentional, planned obsolescence.

Why I use linux and stay away from all Microsoft products, With MS you get what you pay for with linux you get what you learn how to use and protection and detection is endless. I thought about putting windows7 back on my laptop as dual boot and then came back to my senses.

  


My desktop dual boots Debian Testing and Ubuntu 13.10. I've been using Linux for 13 years without any virus protection and had never had a virus. It's that much safer than Windows.
