I am pretty certain nobody really cares about security updates for XP since they never seemed to really work anyway.

The single best reason to upgrade to ANYTHING else is 64BIT and memory above 2GB. DO NOT mention XP 64... that was never actually a product, otherwise it would have things like "Driver Support".

All in all XP was a pretty good OS once you tore it apart and rebuilt it the way you wanted it. The ENTIRE 3rd and 2nd world still operates on XP. I have to keep an XP laptop here at the business because all of the cellular software we use (from our factory in China) is XP only.
