    Firstly, hi!
    It's so cool to see people still making communities for XP and supporting them. I have XP as a second OS on my computer. I actually use it for a lot of my offline work(word processing, spreadsheets, etc.). It's such a focused experience that isn't distracting, plus it runs BLAZING fast, one of the many advantages of using an older OS.

    I now, however, want to take it online, if it's even possible. If anyone can help me with the following, I will be eternally grateful:
    -A way to run Google Meets and Zoom since my company uses both
    -A way to use YouTube
    -Antivirus program that doesn't clog up my memory but is still effective at detecting harmful files(I'm not downloading anything, just want to take the extra step in protecting my PC)
    -Being able to go on newer websites in general without getting a blank white screen or a "not supported" message


    Is the following even possible? Can it be done all at once with a community-made patch or copy of XP? I'd love to learn more! I have no problem if it doesn't work, but I am curious to see whether I can do my everyday tasks on a faster, more familiar OS to me

    Thank you so much! I'll try that right now! At the very least I just needed basic online functions, good to know I can go well beyond that! I can easily just go on Zoom/Meet on another device if it doesn't work on XP.
