Planned obsalescence. And you're buying into it hook line and sinker.
I've still got one active buggy XP box, it's slower than hell, too slow to be a production machine, and painful to use, but "i'm buying into it", yeah, right, I should still be using a TRS-80 or Commodore-64 with that logic or using that old brick analog cell phone.
Sorry, XP was crap, it's mostly gone from my life, I've rebooted less in the last 2 years than ever before in my life, the machine stays up months at a time, I couldn't be happier.
End of story.
FWIW, I didn't upgrade the OS, I bought new hardware and it was just there. I sure as hell wasn't downgrading this fine new box to XP garbage, what would the point be? Stupidity.
