<p><strong> MICROSOFT'S MOST </strong> beloved operating system has suffered a final indignity in what has been a death by a thousand cuts. </p>
<p> The final version of Windows XP that was still being supported has now reached end of life, marking the final, end of a love story with consumers that has lasted 17 years. </p>
<p> Windows Embedded POSReady 2009, which was used to power until and other point-of-sale equipment (hence the name), has now been axed too , fully compatible with the operating system fully implemented </p>
<p> It's bad news for the happy few who are still using Windows XP on other devices because it is the end of a nice little workaround that has allowed users to keep their machines up To date by hacking on the updates from Windows Embedded. </p><div><script async src=

For anyone still determined to keep running a machine currently running XP going that bit longer, it's bad news. Windows 7 and Windows 8.x are both off sale now, meaning that you have to completely reflash your machine with Windows 10 – after paying for a copy of course.

Windows XP was the longest serving version of the operating system, arriving in late 2001 as a replacement for Windows 2000. It remained hugely popular and at the time the desktop edition was retired in 2014, it was still one of the most popular versions of Windows – seeing off Vista (not hard) and even the incumbent (at the time) Windows 8.x.

The continuing use of XP led to a number of security issues, not least of all the Wannacry ransomware attack which brought down much local and national government and the NHS, which XP had a wide use of the time.

A similar problem awaits in January 2020 when Windows 7, which still commands nearly 40 per cent of the Windows market, reaches end-of-life itself. μ
