    Wait does that mean the Portable Update program will stop working as well for Windows XP?

    not sure but since the updates are already saved to be installed offline, do not see why it still would not work.

    I saw a youtube video about the restored windows update site for 2000 because I needed all the unofficial updates to get mypal and some other xp stuff running on my laptop from 2005 and it now runs lots of xp software and most browsers for xp so I get decent use out of that machine.

    Probably no, because Vista got an update(via Server 2008 SP2 updates) to get SHA2 support for updates

    In a blog post, Chutten, a Firefox dev said of its long-term commitment to the decrepit OS: "It required effort, and it required devoting resources to supporting XP well after Microsoft stopped doing so. It meant we couldn't do other things since we were busy with XP.

    I just read above elsewhere in a artical. this is a blatant lie, there are at least one million people on this mud ball who would love to volunteer their time to FF xp development this is, like the record companys saying they could not find plastic to make records with when they wished to kill them off, which also killed music till
    they learned to make a CD have HI fidelity, which it did not possess for years.

    these are anti trust issues, the XP market is huge, very huge, whats hard is to convert a xp to
    steal every dam thing you do to a MS data mining operation.
    Which is the best thing 10 does, collect data. part of being a healthy adult is not being willing to sacrificing your person boundaries, FOR A CHEAP THRILL.

    This subject.......so you can verbalize it...... is called-Pleasure vs Consequence........

    This whole NT 5.x update shutdown rumors are because Microsoft on July 19,2019 will start using SHA2 signatures and will stop using the old "insecure" SHA1 ones that were used over a decade for updates and since NT 5.x(2000,XP,Server 2003) doesn't support SHA2 updates signatures that MS will start soon using on Server 2008 SP2 and later( witch got an update to add support for them, probably for XP, Server 2003 too via Premium Support channel)

    Yah; that's, like, 0.0015 1/100ths of one percent of the 'mudball's' population.

    Pretty 'small potatoes', Jim.

    That's one million times $100 (or however much M$ conned each of them into paying!), which is not such small potatoes.

    Well, okay, yeah; fair point! Looked at it in that light, it's NOT 'small potatoes' at all.

    (Gawd, I hate it when folks turn insistently 'practical' and start quoting financial figures at me..... :D

    You're a practical sorta guy, so I don't expect shrill SJW-style emotionalism will do the job....facts for the factual!

    The hackers can get whatś not there.
    I run a couple of XP rigs but of course I don´t do credit card purchases or online banking on my XP PCs.
    I don´t put anything on those XP machines that I wouldn´t post on a public bulletin board in the shopping mall.
    Like everything else common sense rules the day.

    If the hackers want to infect my most expensive XP PC machine (IBM G40 - that would fetch about $5.00 in scrap copper) with ransomware and encrypt the HDD ... be my guest. Hardly worth the effort.
