    I had a revelation the other day. Windows XP is continually becoming more secure! Why?

    Well, XP can't run software made for 7 or 10. So, as viruses are targeted for 10, XP becomes safe!

    Let me add something to this please. The last 5 1/2 years I have used XP without support from MS, as my primary OS, freely connecting to the internet on a daily basis. During all this time I found only 3 or 4 spyware files (PUPs, I believe we are supposed to call them), and a few other insignificant things that were easily removed by whatever cleaner I used.

    It is said that 'Proof of the pudding is in the eating' :)

    Even better: try running ANY modern Windows program on Windows 98. In rare cases, you will be able to install it, but you will get no further.
