It may be getting the same updates as normal XP now, but will that still be the case after 2014?

Maybe, if you want to pay for per-incident support. Extending support doesn't mean public patches, it means support if you have an issue.

Simon-

Ya we have been OWNED. Us, the people moving on and not looking for cash register OS's just cause we are too lazy or cheap to upgrade. Ya the jokes on us completely. You got it.

I was referring to the Windows XP haters who make it their life mission to destroy and ridicule anyone who still uses XP. I have moved on myself but don't care what OS other people use. Others, however, get really fired up whenever they see a machine still running XP and it would absolutely torture them if XP support got extended again (referring to actual "Windows XP" support being extended without resorting to a Point of Sale XP edition)

What's the point of this post? That people with Windows XP POSReady 2009 will have to pay for support after 2014?

Read first post carefully.

I did and you made it a point to show us where it reads that Windows POSReady 2009 will be getting extended support until 2019.

The lines to read between are quite huge. Your first post is clearly an attempt at a victory in your very apparent agenda. I'm sorry but it's not. No amount of updates are going to put you on the same playing field.

We use Windows Embedded on our Symbol/Motorola Handheld terminals here at work. Which we use for order processing.

not really sure how this would help any unless you were going to download each KB manually to install them (if you even wanted to)

Because a lot of people, including myself don't like Microsoft's latest offerings. I know it's hard to grasp here at Windows 7 fanboys central. Join some other forums. ;)

Me personally I just like to ridicule the people who complain that cutting edge tech and software won't run on an 11 year old Operating System.

So what happens in 2019 when you can no longer get updates from your Windows XP POSReady 2009 VM?

Guys, comon MS supported Windows 3.11 until the end of 2008... it came out in 1992... that was 16 years! and that was WINDOWS 3.11! This whole discussion is pointless, because the support is only for embedded systems... which was what windows 3.11 was supported for also that long

They won't need to be reverse engineered. It's the same updates, KB numbers, etc. See my screenshot earlier in the thread.

If this is Windows 7 fanboys central (I hope that's what you mean because your post doesn't make much sense otherwise), why bother posting XP stuff here? :laugh:

Microsoft sells embedded versions long after they stop selling general editions, this is nothing new.

If your point is that you can use these updates to keep using XP, then you failed to properly say that in OP. If you want to stick to XP, more power to you (because, damn you will need it). Someday you will need to move on though.

Very few people hate Windows XP .... it's old hat now and 11 years old .... and when people highlight this they are called XP haters.

If Neowin is Windows 7 fanboy central (not that it is) then doesn't that tell how good Windows 7 is and what your missing by refusing to upgrade?

      I hate Microsoft asking people to activate.  I paid for my copy of Windows XP and it suddenly became inactive.  My computer came with Windows Vista pre-installed and both HP and MS argued on who's fault it was that my install became invalid.  I bought Windows 7 and faced much of the same problem.   After all this... I decided to buy my copy DIRECTLY from Microsoft themselves when Windows 8 came out.  You can see the order yourself (see screenshot)   http://postimg.org/image/zczj4c243/   I even got that cool deal where you could get Microsoft Media Center    http://postimg.org/image/3m577aekd/   Bought it directly from Microsoft... Guess what...   Being valid only means I watch my money get wasted and I have to find ways around them.  As Windows 10 comes around the corner.... I wonder...

      With hundreds of millions still using Windows XP with no plans to change anytime soon forced Googles hand to continue supporting it. At least until the end of 2016. China still has 1/3 of it's pcs still running the obsolete OS. Many still use IE 6 as well causing Web designers to use 15 year old hacks.

      Longtime Internet Explorer leader Dean Hachamovitch is leaving Microsoft

       
      Dean Hachamovitch introducing Internet Explorer 10 in 2011. (Microsoft photo, via Flickr.)
      Dean Hachamovitch is leaving Microsoft. And yes, of course, there is an IE shirt associated with this milestone, too.
      Dean Hachamovitch?s farewell present, an homage to the IE shirts that he wore at events over the years.
      The longtime Internet Explorer leader, who led the efforts to modernize and revitalize Microsoft?s web browser, is making his departure after 24 years with the company.
      Hachamovitch, most recently Microsoft?s chief data scientist, isn?t taking another full-time executive position in the short term, but he will be working as an adviser to LifeQ, a company that uses data to create digital simulations of human physiology.
      ?I?m overdue for a change. The company really has changed a lot,? Hachamovitch said in an interview with GeekWire this morning. ?It?s a good time to get a different point of view on tech and life.?
      A former corporate vice president at the company, Hachamovitch is the latest in a series of respected Windows leaders to exit the company, as part of a broader regime change under operating systems chief Terry Myerson, who previously led the Windows Phone group and is leading a revamp of the operating system with the upcoming Windows 10 release.
      Earlier departures included Jon DeVaan, the longtime Windows engineering leader; Tami Reller, who was the Windows marketing and finance chief before taking a larger marketing position inside the company; and Antoine Leblond, a Microsoft exec known for his leadership roles on the Office and Windows teams.
       
       In college I loved my Mac and had strong feelings about Microsoft Word. Making Word better sounded cool. I got a job offer from the company and thought, ?I?ll try this for a year.? ?
      For years, Internet Explorer suffered from a lack of active development, serving as the bane of web developers and a high-profile target for attacks. ?I want to be clear: We messed up,? Hachamovitch said at a Microsoft conference in 2006, in a refreshing moment of candor from a Microsoft executive. ?We messed up. As committed as we are to the browser, we just didn?t do a good job demonstrating it.?
       
      Under his leadership, in the following years, IE went through a series of major upgrades to adopt web standards and become a platform for modern web applications.
      Hachamovitch took on the new role as chief data scientist a little more than a year ago. Mary Jo Foley of ZDNet reported in July that he was no longer in that companywide position. He originally joined Microsoft out of Harvard to work on Word for Mac.
      ?In college I loved my Mac and had strong feelings about Microsoft Word. Making Word better sounded cool. I got a job offer from the company and thought, ?I?ll try this for a year.?,? he writes today in a blog post announcing his decision to leave. ?The opportunity to work with strong people across the industry and to contribute to technology and products that matter has lasted much longer than that.?
      Microsoft isn?t issuing a statement on his departure, but people we spoke with inside the company say Hachamovitch is leaving on good terms.
      During his time leading the IE team, Hachamovitch was known for appearing on stage in shirts created by his team, featuring the Internet Explorer logo as part of a word referencing whichever IE release he was unveiling at the time. His executive assistant, Kelli Marks, continued the tradition for his departure from the company, giving him the ?bye? shirt above as a gift.
