    I tried to use win7 but the endless updates that took ages and you have to
    reboot every time. In the end as an experiment I installed Linux Mint. That
    was 2 years ago and I haven’t used Windows since.
    I didn’t see much difference in interface and you have to get used to
    differences in interface anyway if you move to Win 8 or later. Also I use
    some of my favourite windows apps on linux – you run them with a progam
    called Wine. Mostly though I found equivalent and better free programs that
    are made for linux – SOOO many!
    The way I see it if you get a new computer and move to win7 or 8 you are
    only going to be forced to do the same years later so why not free yourself
    from Microsoft now?

    One question you didn’t answer, and one I have been asked and have not been
    able to get a definitive answer for, is will the current level of updates
    (at switch off time) still be available from the MS site? For instance if
    you wish to re-install XP from a disk will that version be update-able with
    the relevent service packs and security updates etc?

    What about avast antivirus or malwarebytes that protect you from virus and
    other threat on windows xp even no security updates ?

    Great video. I just upgrade to Windows 7. It works OK. I thought Win 7 had
    some sort of embedded XP mode. Would this support Mach3 within Win 7?

  9. gfx2006

    Do you know of any alternatives to Mach3 for CNC machines that would run on
    Win7?

    without it.
    So I Made A Plan. Please let me know if I will be secure by using this plan.
    1.Use XP Offline Only
    2.Dual Boot Windows 7 And XP
    3. Use Windows 7 to work online and obtain files
    4.Use XP for offline applications and on the go.
    5.Install Anti-virus On Windows 7

    Thank You! Please let me know if my Plan will be alright for end of life

    I had Broadband internet through Time Warner back in 1999. It was 2Mbps but
    it was way better than using 56K dial-up and I didn’t have to tie up my
    phone line

    Use puppy linux

    Get System Mechanic from iolo and it will support it for you because it
    takes care of the viruses and slow down issues. http://www.iolo.com

    I’ll just wait with XP on my old computers until 9 comes out.

    It’s not like XP will blow up or get riddled with more viruses than there
    currently is.

    Steve your advice is well taken. BTW I have one laptop PC that came with
    Win 7 that I’ve had to downgrade to Win XP, because HP didn’t offer support
    beyond XP for some of their products. Thank goodness speed of the OS isn’t
    critical and connectivity with the internet isn’t required.

    🙁 windows 8 looks like it was designed by a five year old

  23. Carrie King

    Are these virus issues not prevented at all by independent antivirus
    programs?
