Default Microsoft is Still Making Security Updates for Windows XP, But You Canít Have Them

Windows XP isnít dead and buried yet. Microsoft will be creating security updates for XP for years to come, but those updates wonít be available to normal users. No, theyíre just for large businesses and governments with money to burn.

Most people still using Windows XP at home are happy with their PCs and donít want to pay more money, so Microsoft isnít offering this service to normal users. Theyíd probably just be upset if a request for $200 popped up.
