    Windows XP is still supported, although Microsoft denies the opposite but updates are always present, I managed to activate my copy, with genuine and validation.

    The my copy is ORIGINAL Microsoft.

    Thanks, that good to know. It costs them a tiny fraction of the company profits to keep the Validation server(s) and Window Update server(s) on. It would likely cost far more if humans needed to be involved, should they turn off the automatic processes.

    Which brings me to the question of, why did they stop selling XP in the first place? It certainly wasn't for lack of demand. At my former job, we never stop selling anything. It could have sold zero units when introduced and one unit bought 30 years later.

    XP 64 could have been the final Microsoft OS, and code added as new security holes were found. Drivers could have been created for all devices for XP 32 and XP 64. GPT support could have been added to XP. Better TCP/IP drivers could have been created for XP to get Win7 TCP/IP speeds. If made open source in 2014, we'd likely be there now.

    I just don't get the change for change sake. If it works, keep it working and working securely. What is the name of that OS that looks and feels like a generic XP?

    I'm hopefully starting a company soon if I can raise enough venture capital (health dependent). Once a product is introduced, I have no plans to stop production. I may do a batch once every 1, 2, 4, 6 months depending on demand, and later batches may be smaller, but entirely stopping production is out of the question.

    Many thanks for your answer and considerations only one my opinion Micrisoft have stopped with Windows xp because Windiws 10 must go ahead only for one cause: the money


    The last version of Windows 10 have a bug what doing the insiders? Or the money are more important?

    The my decision is only one Windows Xp in my pc forever open the eyes Micrisoft say one thing and do it other say to us Windows Xp not have updates but have the politic Microsoft is very hard to accept sometime i not understand is very hard for me

    Bye and thanks again

    I've continued to test Windows XP Pro SP3 32-bit since it reached its unofficial end-of-life(EOL) in April 2019.
    More and more apps keep dropping support for it, so I use only the third-party apps that I absolutely need.
    I submitted a detailed install and update guide for it that I've created and improved on over time.
    I also found and use what I consider to be a better looking "XP" wallpaper.

    M$ dropped the support for W7 with a black wallpaper bug.
    the only way to fix this issue is paying for extended secury updates but now it seems like they will do it for free.
    well... they actually wanted to scare people and get them moving to W10

    *I am not too much interested on W7 but I think there is already a hacked patch to get the ESU updates.

    Microsoft uses the policy of scaring people, and also uses dictatorship and the regime

    Simple explanation is M$ greed. You sell XP only, then most likely you only sell it once per customer. If you keep 'retiring' one version after another, while cattle-prodding the sheeple to buy each new version with shrill cries of 'UNSAFE' or 'DANGEROUS', then you sell each version one after another, and keep milking that good cash-flow from the mindless herd indefinitely.

    Next there is the M$ philosophy of making us lowly endusers the secondary product to sell(out) to their Ritchie Rich clients, via packing in ever new and pernicious incarnations of their corporate spyware/malware based on Palladium (http://www.samizdat.net/zelig/~rja14/tcpa-faq.html), and making it ever more difficult to combat via customization or configuration utilities like XPlite.

    Hi Flavallee.
    Read your post with great interest.
    You posted with reference to 32 bit Windows XP Pro.
    I always thought that XP Pro only came in a 64 bit flavor.
    Not wanting to correct your post, only wishing it was true..

    All primary versions(Home Edition, Professional, Media Center Edition) of Windows XP came in 32-bit.
    Only the Professional version also came in 64-bit.

    The 32-bit versions had a Service Pack 3.
    The 64-bit version had a Service Pack 2.

    Thanks Flavalee.
    Appreciate the information.
    I own the 64-bit version of pro which is presently uninstalled.
    Looking to purchase a 32-bit version as I understand that it plays better with early games.
    I'm an ex Fla Charlotte County resident of many years, by the by. Sometimes miss it. :(

    There are several ISO files of Windows XP Pro SP3 32-bit which are self-activating and integrated to April 2019.
    If you can obtain one of those ISO files, you can create your own bootable install DVD.
    Since these are non-genuine copies, I can't help you, so you will need to search for it yourself.

    You have several options...one already given by flavallee. Others are from Ebay. One seller lists used PCs with XP Pro SP3 already installed and pre-activated. I bought a Dell Optiplex 755 before that lasted three years, and now have an Optiplex 960 from him. Both was ready to go out of the box...no fooling with shady M$ activation. Another seller lists WD hard drives (500GB & 1TB), both new and refurbished, with XP Pro already installed and pre-activated. Just install the HDD in your PC and its ready. There are XP Pro install CDs on Ebay too, but I can't think of why anyone in their right mind would want to fool with sleazy MS and its activation nonsense.
