Windows XP is “past its security expiration date” [edbott.com]

If you're still using Windows XP, please stop. Seriously, figure out how to migrate to Windows 7 or Windows 8. Or to an modern alternative platform if you don't trust Microsoft.

Well, it's true that XP is passed its best, however, being a cynic, that smells like an "attack MS OS" message.

I agree.
Listen to Justin Schuh, an Information Security Engineer at Google

Yeah, take Google's opinion on it, that'll be unbiased.

Given that the quoted post (within the post linked above) is in the context of Chrome, the cynic in me wonders why we don't just use a different browser, if Chrome can't get it's security right?

A workman never blames his tools.

And yes, I'm being facetious. To a point.
