Microsoft is no longer supporting Windows XP. It's being phased out worldwide. In China, folks are hanging on. In nearby South Korea, the government has set up a special task force.
Today is April 7th, the last day before the worldwide phaseout of Microsoft's Windows XP operating system. While most people out West will be operating happily in either Windows 8, 7 and even, hahaha, Vista, close to 200 million people in China will still be holding onto XP.
Do not fear Windows 7. Sure, the tests might show that Windows XP performs better, but Microsoft assures us all that the next version of their operation system will be "great for games".
