Default Online Safety: Why You Should Give Up Windows XP For Good

Most geeks will tell you it’s well past time to get rid of XP and upgrade to newer, safer operating systems. It can be tough to explain, so keep reading this list of real world reasons to let XP go.

Maybe you’re not sure why you should upgrade to a newer operating system. Maybe you’ve tried to explain it to friends but can’t quite explain why they should. Read our reasoning below or join the conversation with your own experiences—whether you’re a Windows user or not, it’s time to put XP out to pasture.

Maybe XP infections are that high because it was that widely used?

My experience over the years:

Win 3.11 : Didn't use it much, preferred DOS. But I still use fences - maybe a reminder of Win3.11 (Avoids your icons/shortcutsbeing all over the placehen connecting an external monitor to my laptop)
Win 95: buggy
Win NT: not suited for home use
Win 98: still buggy
Win 98SE: best Microsoft OS at that moment, finally something stable.
Win Me (Millenium): Worse even than Vista and that's saying something!!!
Win 2000: Predecessor to Win XP
Win XP: Finally a reason to upgrade from Win98SE. Still prime benching OS
Win Vista: Win Me revisited
Win 7: Finally a reason to upgrade from Xp
Win 8: Leave out Metro and maybe worthwhile to upgrade fro Win7
