Convince me to stop using XP
It was the last good windows besides maybe windows 7 (XP was still better imo). Don't bother moving to another windows. When you finally realize how outdated and pathetic XP is I suggest looking at something like Linux or even a mac or bsd.
STOP OR THE KITTEH GETS IT.
Former XP user. I dropped XP for Mint after it took several minutes at a time just to boot and artifacting with various apps (chief among them being Skype) just refused to work anymore.
Now I'm happily running Mint, and with a good bit of my old games library still available on Mint, I can't say I'm disappointed.
Because you can have the same look and feel, with the power of Android! (Yes, this is my actual home screen)
>several minutes to boot
This is an X2 5200+/2GB machine booting XP off a 55MB/s 80GB hard drive from 2006.
OP, you only ever stop using XP if you need a 64bit OS. I had to upgrade because I was hitting the 2GB per process limit while encoding. Otherwise I'd still be on it.

How about the fact everyone's laughing at you and that there are plenty of Linux distros for Shitty old hardware you could run that aren't vulnerable to years of unpatched security holes.
But you're an xp fag so I would never expect you to change now. Just keep using it and running ie.
