We have netbooks to thank for XP even still existing don't we?
ETA: Pop's little Acer netbook is running WinXP Home 5.1.2600 SP3 Build 2600. I update it semi-regularly, but more than once a month.
There are more than just security updates looks like to me. But I may not be understanding the full extent of "security updates".

How can that be? Easily. Windows 8 runs with a "tablet" interface. OR a normal "desktop" interface. It does both. You can switch, at will. It's easy.
What is wrong with this picture?
Microsoft is doing a horrible job of message control. All they show people is the "tablet" interface, they aren't telling us you don't have to use it!
Bonus cool thing that Win8 does? You can install it on a 32gb flash drive. Stick that flash drive in any Win7 PC, and boot into Win8.
There's a level of facility that everyone needs to accomplish, and from there
it's a matter of deciding for yourself how important ultra-facility is to your
expression. ... I found, like Joseph Campbell said, if you just follow whatever
gives you a little joy or excitement or awe, then you're on the right track.

It is TOTALLY true. Stop listening to your guy. He is telling you, you don't have to DEVELOP for one interface or the other. But you have to USE both.
The Start button in the "desktop" interface has been replaced with a context switch that pops you into the "tablet" interface. You cannot avoid it. You are forced into it. You have to use the tablet interface with your mouse. All Control Panel items are in the tablet interface...
And it blows. There is mandatory horizontal scrolling... great for tablets, shitty for desktops and mice. And particularly shitty for laptops and touchpads. Fucking Christ.
So boot it, give it a try, and come running back here screaming. I double dawg dare ya.
