Just a quick heads up that Microsoft ended official support for Windows XP today. Notoriously anti-change gamers have long held up the 12 year old XP as a shining example of everything right with Microsoft before it all went horribly wrong, but they’ve also said that about every operating system ever, including Windows 7 now that we have Windows 8 to hate on, so, whatever. The king ancient operating system is dead, long live whatever you installed to replace it.
