    What does the loss of XP support mean to me as an individual user? a) Don't worry about it and continue using my current working laptop, or b) replace with a Windows 7 laptop that wife no longer uses (Android tablet), or c) buy an Windows 8.1 tablet with a detachable keyboard that I saw on sale.

    My guess is a) don't worry about it, but I could use some reassurance because of security concerns.
    No problems, no change. Go with the flow.

    Also, if you're thinking about upgrading/renewing your Microsoft Office craptastic programs, try OpenOffice (FREEWARE) and see if you're happy with it before renewing. Basically the same program with buttons in different places and things named different.

    Don't put your trust in anyone on this forum, including me. You are the key to your own success.

    Thanks for the information. I figured it was OK to stay with Windows XP. I do have other available options but I like using my big, bulky old Sony Vaio laptop more than any of my wife's newer, smaller, and faster computers and tablets.

    I tried OpenOffice 8 years ago to do a database and spreadsheet. It just didn't work as well as MS Office. If I do get a new computer I will try it again as I'm sure it has improved over the years.

    I've got some GA tickets for the MTSU game for you if you are interested. It should be a great game.

    Sounds awesome!! But I never know until that day whether I can make the trek over. Baby (and Mom's sanity) are the determining factors.

    Works very well. It is a shame more people don't realize that a free version of basically MS Office is out there.
