XP Just Keeps On Going..............
Here's an interesting article from PCWorld.  And speaking of the dead walking...................

Dead OS walking: Windows XP still powers 181 million PCs two years after support ends Prying the obsolete XP from users proves difficult, especially in China, where it remains the No. 2 operating system

This is a very interesting article, and just shows that being 'conservative' is far more than a political philosophy.  S13

But further on, it discusses China, where PRC has the largest numbers of users.  

Quote:While XP’s usage share of the U.S. market was a minuscule 3.2%—less than half the global average of 7.5%—XP last month remained a strong contender in the People’s Republic of China (PRC). There, XP accounted for 26.2% of all personal computer operating systems as measured by Irish analytics company StatCounter.
China has an even bigger XP problem according to Baidu, the PRC’s largest search provider. Data from Baidu pegged XP’s share of the country’s OS market at 31.6% for March, a significant decline from 44.1% a year ago but still almost a third of all PC OSes.
Microsoft has launched several initiatives in the PRC to get customers there to upgrade to a newer version of Windows. Last fall, for example, Microsoft partnered with Baidu to promote Windows 10 adoption. In return, Baidu was made the default search provider for the Chinese version of Windows 10.

I'm not sure if I mentioned this, but I came across a new Linux OS, called Zorin OS, which allows the user to set it up to look like Windows XP, or even Windows 7.  I think I'm going to have to take one of the extra computers I have lying around and load Zorin up just to see how it goes, since I have been meaning to go Linux for some time now. 

Here's the article I received from Gizmo's Freeware site, which I receive on a daily basis. 

Zorin OS 11 Is Here
